Positive Living, Positive Homes (PLPH) is a community-based research study using multi-site case study methodology to explore the complex relationship between housing and health for people living with HIV in British Columbia. It is being co-led by the Pacific AIDS Network and the University of Victoria.
PLPH aims to find out more about how factors such as housing policies, access to health and housing services, stigma and discrimination, and community characteristics influence housing for people living with HIV. Our long-term goal is to make housing-related services and policies more appropriate and accessible for people living with HIV, ultimately improving quality of life.
This study is funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research: Institute of Infection and Immunity (HIV/AIDS).
