Regional Workshop and Seminar on HIV, AIDS and Housing, September 2014, Johannesburg, South Africa: Presentations

News and Resources

27 representatives from housing organisations in eight Sub-Saharan African countries and Canada participated in a three-day workshop in Johannesburg, South Africa, on HIV, AIDS and housing to confront the multiple and inseparable links between housing conditions and HIV. The workshop was co-hosted by Rooftops Canada, We Effect Southern Africa (formerly, the Swedish Co-operative Centre) and MES Johannesburg. This workshop started with a brief overview, context setting and assessment followed by five capacity building and exchange sessions. It ended with all participants preparing their own action plans and providing inputs into a regional action plan. It was followed by a half-day seminar on the same topic with a wider audience of interested South Africans, and site visits in Johannesburg.
