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.
