Many people are living long, healthy lives with HIV – well into older adulthood. People over 50 make up about one in every six people diagnosed with HIV in the US and there are many thousands of young adults (many in their 20s and 30s) who have lived with HIV since birth or very early in life. Additionally, there are many women in between, who are aging with HIV and don’t fall into either of the above categories. Numerous women in The Well Project’s community identify with these varied experiences.
