Call for Abstracts
Since 2005, the annual Housing and HIV/AIDS Research Summit series has provided a unique interdisciplinary forum to present and discuss research findings on the relationship between housing status and HIV prevention and care, and the implications of those findings for public policy.

The theme of the 2011 Summit is Eliminating HIV Health Disparities. Presentations with a focus on the potential of housing strategies to reduce health inequities for people living with HIV and prevent new infections. We invite abstracts presenting results of scientific research, economic analyses, program evaluations, community-based interventions, and public policy strategies that reflect this theme.

Of particular interest is work that broadens our understanding of housing need and interventions among members of vulnerable populations and in underserved communities, including displaced persons, rural areas, and resource-poor settings.  International research is welcome.
