HealthHIV's INAUGURAL

STATE OF
AGING
WITH HIVTM

NATIONAL SURVEY

HealthHIV’s Pozitively Aging program seeks to improve access to services and care coordination for people with HIV (PWH) over the age of 50. The number of people aging with HIV is rapidly increasing, and care coordination to manage multiple conditions is vital in maintaining optimal health. Health outcomes can be improved and sustained for PWH over the age of 50 by enhancing care coordination/access, health literacy, and patient-provider communications. This program seeks to enhance provider knowledge related to the experiences of PWH over the age 50 and the co-management of conditions associated with aging with HIV through data collection and medical education. Additionally, Pozitively Aging will offer consumer education materials to strengthen self-management of care and health literacy.

The overall objectives of the program are to:

  • Increase care coordination among people with HIV over the age of 50;
  • Increase access to care and services for people with HIV over the age of 50;
  • Increase competence among infectious disease clinicians, primary care providers, pharmacists, and allied healthcare providers to co-manage geriatric conditions and HIV care;
  • Increase the engagement of people over the age of 50 with HIV with care;
  • Enhance provider knowledge related to aging with HIV and co-management of conditions associated with aging and HIV;
  • Strengthen patient engagement in care and knowledge related to self-management of care; and
  • Improve quality of communication between providers and consumers.​
