Addressing Housing Challenges Faced by People with HIV in Ontario

Many Ontarians with HIV struggle to find and maintain appropriate, stable housing, which affects their health and well-being as well as their access to health services. The purpose of this issue brief and stakeholder dialogue was to identify ways to address several fundamental problems, such as existing housing and housing-related services not meeting the needs of people with HIV, delivery methods for housing and HIV services that complicate access to these services, and funding arrangements and jurisdictional issues that make it more difficult to provide services that meet the housing and health needs of these individuals. (Dialogue held June 1, 2010)
