Rooftops Canada/ Abri International is the international development program of co-operative and social housing groups in Canada. Rooftops Canada works with partner organizations to improve housing conditions, build sustainable communities and develop a shared vision of equitable global development. Rooftops Canada's focus is on disadvantaged communities in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and Eastern Europe.
This is a compilation of resource material on Housing and HIV and AIDS. Much of the material has been developed with our partner organizations as programmatic resources and strategies for dealing with HIV/AIDS in their work. We invite you to use the information on this CD as resource material for your work. The South African training materials should be of particular use to co-operative, community based and social housing groups.
The info is organized in the following categories:
Overview on HIV, AIDS and Housing provides a background, discusses issues confronted by housing organizations responding to HIV and AIDS and identifies some strategies adopted by Rooftops Canada’s partners (Download the document here).
