4:00 - 5:00pm [CET]
As access to antiretroviral therapy has improved significantly, the ageing population living with HIV has grown rapidly. UNAIDS estimates that the number of people aged 50 years or older living with HIV globally increased from 5.4 million in 2015 to 8.1 million in 2020. This means that HIV services must develop and strengthen interventions that address the evolving health needs of an ageing population beyond just HIV care.
While the “lifespan” of people living with HIV has increased, the HIV response must now shift focus towards increasing the “healthspan” – the overall health and quality of life of people growing older with HIV. There is an urgent need to better understand the myriad of unprecedented and unique health challenges that growing older with HIV entails.
This webinar will feature Guest Editors and authors of the recent special issue of the Journal of the International AIDS Society, “Growing older with HIV in the Treat-All Era”.
