Affordable Housing & Community Advocacy for People Living with HIV: Assessing Best Practices & Health Impact
PROJECT SUMMARY: Our team will use a mixed methods approach to assess the best strategies for and the health impact of affordable housing programs and case management for people living with HIV/AIDS in West Alabama. To investigate the health impact, we will partner with Maude Whatley Health Services and West Alabama AIDS Outreach and conduct a comparative effectiveness research study. We will conduct a program evaluation of a statewide community and policy advocacy program for people living with HIV/AIDS in Alabama and examine relevant state policies and interview elected officials and people living with HIV/AIDS in Alabama.
