According to the Centers for Disease Control, Housing assistance is health care for people living with HIV.
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 benefit from life-saving HIV treatments, people living with HIV must have safe, stable housing.
Housing status has more impact on health outcomes than demographics, drug and alcohol use, mental health status or receipt of social services.
People with HIV who have stable housing are much more likely to access health services, attend primary care visits, receive ongoing care and receive care that meets clinical practical standards.
Being stably housed is positively associated with:
- Effective antiretroviral therapy (HAART)
- Viral suppression
- Lack of co-infection with hepatitis C or tuberculosis
- Significant reductions in avoidable emergency and acute health care
- Reduced mortality
In order to address this critical generic celexa vs celexa need in our community, Carolinas CARE Partnership is the project sponsor for the HUD-funded Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS program (HOPWA) program.
The Carolinas CARE Partnership has developed a continuum of care that provides funding to agencies for numerous services and programs designed to meet the housing needs of low-income people and families living with HIV.
Housing is Healthcare for people living with HIV.
