The successes of ART and sustained viral-suppression mean that long-term care strategies for persons with HIV are coming into focus. Consequently, there will need to be increased attention to the co-incidence of HIV, long-term drug therapy and the co-morbidities and chronic health concerns commonly associated with the aging population at large. In 2018, over half (51%) of people in the United States (US) and dependent areas with diagnosed HIV were aged 50 and older. Though new HIV diagnoses are declining among people over the age of 50, about one in six HIV diagnoses in 2018 were among this age group.

Educational Objectives:

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Recognize key challenges in the care of older persons living with HIV (OPLWH) including the high burden of comorbidities and emergence of geriatric syndromes
  • Recognize the relationships between the development of geriatric syndromes and functional decline
  • Identify methods for screening, identification, and management of age-related conditions among OPLWH
  • Understand the potential role of geriatric approaches to improve the care of OPLWH
