New York Representative Jerrold Nadler
announced Monday he would introduce a new resolution in Congress that
would address housing issues affecting HIV positive people.
Nadler is expected to unveil details of
the resolution at a Tuesday news event in Washington D.C.
The resolution will call on the House
of Representatives to address “the lack of adequate housing as a
barrier to effective HIV prevention, treatment, and care, and commit
to providing adequate funding and developing housing as a response
the AIDS pandemic.”
Several AIDS advocates will join Nadler
at the event including Nancy Bernstine, executive director of
National AIDS Housing Coalition, and Ruthann Tucker of Ontario
