Housing for Persons Living with HIV-AIDS
Libby Perl (au)
Many individuals living with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) have difficulty finding affordable, stable housing. As individuals become ill, they may find themselves unable to work, while at the same time facing health care expenses that leave few resources to pay for housing. In addition, many of those persons living with AIDS struggled to afford housing even before being diagnosed with the disease. The financial vulnerability associated with AIDS, as well as the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that causes AIDS, results in a greater likelihood of homelessness among persons living with the disease. At the same time, those who are homeless may be more likely to engage in activities through which they could acquire or transmit HIV. Further, recent research has indicated that those individuals living with HIV who live in stable housing have better health outcomes than those who are homeless or unstably housed, and that they spend fewer days in hospitals and emergency rooms. Contents of this report: Distribution and Use of the Housing Opportunities for Persons with Aids (HOPWA) Program Funds; HOPWA Program Formula and Funding; Housing Funded Through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program; The Relationship Between Stable Housing and Health Outcomes. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
