Much like the District's Low Income Housing Wait List, access to safe and stable housing for D.C. residents living with HIV & AIDS has been equally devastating -- Over 900 people are currently on the D.C. AIDS Housing Wait List.
HOUSING IS HIV PREVENTION
People who have stable housing are less likely to acquire HIV infection or to transmit HIV to others -- regardless of other risks. HIV prevention strategies will not succeed without attention to housing and other important factors.
HOUSING IS HEALTH CARE
For people living with HIV, housing is one of the strongest predictors of their access to treatment, their health outcomes, and how long they will live. To obtain and bene?t from life-saving HIV treatments, people living with HIV must have safe, stable housing.
