Analysis of Integrated HIV Housing and Care Services. 4. Participant Health Characteristics

02/01/2014

Unlike HOPWA, which does not report on participants’ health characteristics, RWP does report health data. Among RWP clients who received a housing service, about 40 percent were HIV positive but did not have AIDS, and 54 percent had CDC-diagnosed AIDS (Figure II.10). Of the clients receiving housing services, just over 1 percent were HIV-affected participants (including those who were HIV negative or whose status was unknown). In comparison, there was a slightly lower percentage of participants with CDC-diagnosed AIDS among RWP clients not receiving housing services (44 percent) and a slightly higher percentage with HIV, AIDS status unknown (10 percent).

Sixteen percent of RWP clients receiving housing services reported having no insurance, and 46 percent reported having public insurance (Medicare, Medicaid, or other insurance) (Figure II.11). A higher percentage of RWP clients not receiving housing services did not have any insurance (22 percent), and a lower percentage reported having public insurance (38 percent).
