Getting the NAHC of It
Become a Card-Carrying Member of the National AIDS Housing Coalition!
July 11, 2008
An ever-growing body of evidence shows that housing is a crucial tool for fighting the AIDS epidemic. And for the past 15 years the National AIDS Housing Coalition (NAHC) has led the way in gathering information and educating the public about how housing is both healthcare and prevention. The only national organization focusing exclusively on the housing needs of persons living with HIV/AIDS, NAHC works at the federal, state, and local levels to educate and inform advocates, service providers, the business community, and policy makers about the funding priorities that impact housing options for the most vulnerable.
NAHC's leadership on three national AIDS and Housing Research Summits have attracted top researchers from across the globe. These summits have brought together a stellar body of research that empirically demonstrates the correlation between housing, health care, community stability, and cost savings.
