Led by the AIDS InstituteExit Disclaimer, National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day (NHAAD) is observed each year on September 18th to focus on the increasing number of people living long, full lives with HIV.

HIV and Aging Webinar Series: Exploring Data and Engaging in Discussions of HIV, Aging, and Housing

HUD’s Office of HIV/AIDS Housing (OHH) is sponsoring the fifth session in its webinar series focused on HIV and Aging. This webinar, At the Intersection of HIV, Aging & Housing: Exploring the Data & Engaging in Discussions, will take place on Monday, September 18, 2023 from 12-1:30pm (EST).

There is a growing significant need for affordable housing options that meet the needs of the aging population within the U.S. including people aging with HIV. This live webinar will delve into the changing landscape of HIV with a presentation of the key findings from the HealthHIV State of Aging with HIV™ Third Annual National Survey primary health services research report. Following the presentation will be a panel discussion and Q&A with our audience. Our discussion will spotlight the evolving needs of the community, emphasizing the criticality of the "Health and Housing" nexus, while showcasing ways to address these intersectional challenges optimally. The webinar will equip attendees with a multi-faceted understanding of the challenges PWH face, as well as strategies and best practices for meeting the intersectionality of “Health and Housing” and aging with HIV.
