Health Justice, Homelessness and Sanitation: Confronting a National Public Health Crisis

The U.S. is grappling with its worst Hepatitis A (HAV) outbreak since the federal government approved a vaccine in 1995. The outbreak has disproportionally affected people experiencing homelessness. In communities nationwide, adequate, safe, clean and accessible public toilets, sinks, laundry facilities and showers are scarce or altogether absent. Attend this webinar to learn about the connection between sanitation and hygiene access, homelessness and the national HAV outbreak; current government responses to the outbreak; and legal and policy opportunities to further sanitation and hygiene access for people experiencing homelessness.
