New Recommendations for Managing Older People With HIV
The American Academy of HIV Medicine (AAHIVM), the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) and the AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA) released the first clinical treatment strategies for managing older people who have HIV. The report, titled The HIV and Aging Consensus Project: Recommended Treatment Strategies for Clinicians Managing Older Patients with HIV, is part of the organizations’ HIV and aging Consensus Project, developed to assess how the presence of both HIV and common age-related diseases alter the optimal treatment of HIV as well as other co-morbidities. The report aims to provide best practice guidance for health care providers who treat, diagnose and refer older people living with HIV.
