Housing Works is dedicated to the international movement to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS. Our international advocacy focuses on implementing and supporting structural interventions that alleviate HIV/AIDS, such as providing housing to stabilize viral loads and providing linkages to care.

Since December 2012, Housing Works has served as an elected North American representative to the NGO delegation of the Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) of UNAIDS (Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS). As part of the PCB, Housing Works serves as a voice for people living with HIV/AIDS and at-risk populations, and works to ensure that HIV/AIDS is included in the UN’s post-2015 development goals.

In 2012, in the wake of the rise in anti-LGBT legislation being adopted in numerous countries around the globe, Housing Works launched its Asylum Project, which is currently providing housing, health care, legal support, financial support, volunteer work, job training, and employment to LGBT activists from Nigeria, Uganda, Jamaica, and other nations who seek sanctuary in the U.S. to escape imprisonment and violence for who they are and who they love.
