Not to Be Missed at the Global AIDS Conference This Summer: The First-Ever Poverty, Homelessness and HIV Satellite Meeting
As part of the International AIDS Conference in Mexico City in August, the National AIDS Housing Coalition and Housing Works have convened an international committee to plan an International Summit on Poverty, Homeless Persons and HIV. The summit's main objective is to create a declaration demanding that adequate housing be incorporated in the implementation and development of HIV/AIDS public policy at a global level.
The committee's concept paper reads: "Through an intense campaign and consultation via the Internet, our plan within the next six months is to reach HIV positive activists, leaders, investigators, key actors and decision makers in the HIV/AIDS global community so as to open the dialogue to discuss common themes in relation to poverty, the lack of access to housing and HIV/AIDS around the world."
