Affordable and safe housing is a basic component to the well-being and health of families. Without adequate housing, families have trouble managing every aspect of their daily lives. Research has shown that affordable housing is crucial to helping people living with chronic diseases such as HIV to better manage their treatment regimens and achieve their chance of better health outcomes. Overall, individuals or families stably housed can focus on meeting their health needs better than those who do not have stable housing.
