People with HIV infection are living longer than ever thanks to effective antiretroviral therapy and improved chronic disease care. However, older adults living with HIV have a higher incidence of coronary artery disease, and they contract cancers of the lung, liver, and anus at younger ages. In addition, HIV infection and its treatment have been associated with premature bone loss. In this webinar, Dr. Howard Libman, the Director of the HIV Program in Healthcare Associates at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, will provide an overview of the care of older adults living with HIV infection and describe strategies for people working in health centers, AIDS service organizations, and other settings to improve management of comorbidities in in this population.
