Aging with HIV Institute

Providers and Practitioners on the State of HIV Care Coordination

By 2030, nearly 75% of all people living with HIV (PWH) in the US will be aged 50 and older. 84% will most likely have at least one (1) additional comorbidity; 28% will have three (3)—compared with only 19% of those not living with HIV. And while older PWH have shown higher rates of service engagement compared with their younger counterparts, the successes prolonging “physical” health is undermining other aspects of successful aging with HIV and their interventions. Together with community leaders, provider participants will discuss and frame their shared experience conversations into adaptive and innovative recommendations and evidence-based interventions that reduce disability and improve service delivery for PAWH.

Aging With HIV Roundtable: Care Coordination Includes Enhanced Quality of Life

With improved access to antiretrovirals, people are now aging and living longer with HIV (PAWH). While the care cascade highlights our shared medical successes, it doesn’t show the entire picture of the true “costs” of graying of HIV. In fact, health systems often overlook the underlying problem of HIV’s distinctiveness—especially as we age. In an increasingly bio-medicalized context of care delivery, what does successful aging with HIV look like? This roundtable brings together people living and aging with HIV (15 years or more) to review and reflect upon the current capacity and future constraints of the HIV and aging care and prevention services sectors, and the discrete needs that follow.
