Prevention and Treatment

As obesity and lipodystrophy have increased among aging adults living with HIV, so have related conditions including sarcopenia, diabetes, renal and cardiovascular diseases. Building on the previous webinars, this final session focuses on the evidence-based pharmacological and non-pharmacological strategies to prevent and treat these clinical conditions in PLHIV.
