Overview of HIV and Aging

In 2015, more than 50% of HIV-infected patients in the United States are 50 years of age and older. The health experience for those who have lived with HIV for 20 or more years is different than those newly infected. Long term survivors are now facing aging with HIV, which presents a new set of clinical issues and complications.
