Individuals living with HIV who are homeless or lack stable housing are more likely to delay HIV care and less likely to access care consistently or to adhere to their HIV treatment. Housing instability rarely happens without the additional challenges of mental health disorders, substance use, and economic and food insecurity, which can further complicate healthcare needs. This webinar will discuss the medical effects of homelessness and strategies to treat and retain people experiencing homelessness in HIV care.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Describe the health impacts of homelessness for people with HIV.
- Identify barriers to care for people with HIV who are experiencing homelessness.
- Discuss interventions to promote engagement in HIV care for people experiencing homelessness.
