3044.0 Housing, Homelessness, & HIV/AIDS

Monday, October 31, 2011: 8:30 AM
As HIV has become an infection that may be managed much like other chronic diseases, a focus on treatment and prevention continues. Efforts to conduct HIV testing, engage infected individuals in care, and reduce HIV transmission risk are priorities as HIV prevalence rates increase. The HIV/AIDS Section seeks to disseminate study findings related to HIV testing, prevention, and treatment in order to improve future program planning and inform needed research efforts. This session is aimed to share latest research on topics related to homelessness and housing status. The section identified this area as a priority, as homelessness as a risk factor for HIV and a major barrier to HIV care. The section supported the development of session in order to share innovative approaches to eliminating and managing homelessness.
