Housing for people living with HIV/AIDS is essential for improving health and prevention outcomes. The conference will include presentations by senior government officials and housing providers discussing the most important program and policy issues confronting the field in 2012. The numerous opportunities and challenges for HIV/AIDS housing providers this year include healthcare reform, Medicaid redesign process, proposed budget cuts and federal changes to HOPWA.
We invite abstracts that present on program models and best practices, resource models, evaluation systems, public policy issues and other topics relevant to HIV/AIDS housing providers in New York City, especially as they relate to healthcare reform and health disparities. This conference is geared towards HIV/AIDS housing providers, including supportive housing, transitional housing and HPA, but open to all.
Abstracts should be a maximum of 250 words and include:
– Topic: Topics can include evidence based practice, program-based research and experiential narratives.
– Issue: Description of the program, evaluation or resource model, best practices, or public policy issue and how it is relevant for HIV/AIDS housing providers in NYC, especially if it contributes to reducing health disparities.
– Lessons learned: How can this benefit other HIV/AIDS housing programs?
Submissions will be reviewed by the host committee for acceptance. Please email abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, March 9th.
