Advances in Antiretroviral therapy (ART) allow people with HIV to live longer with fewer medications. Join us as Dr. Peter Hunt details the connection between chronic inflammation and HIV infection and discusses care considerations and emerging research.
Ensuring older adults have access to PrEP is a key step towards ending the HIV epidemic in the U.S. This webinar will present considerations around medical, counseling, and educational strategies to improve the uptake of PrEP among people aged 50 and older. It will highlight the benefits and opportunities of using PrEP in this population in efforts to decrease the rate of new HIV infections among people over 50. Presenters will focus on practical strategies for engaging older adults, such as culturally competent messaging and sexual history taking.
CROI Presentation: Dr Kuchel said: ’20 years Difference between HIV + vs HIV- in this chart’ – “These things are Happening A lot Earlier for PWH than they should be, by 20 years. I would expect 80 year olds to have this level of syndromes, but these PWH are still 60 yrs old or younger.”
The shift of the HIV epidemic to increasingly involve older persons highlights several health care needs: (1) medical care systems with the capacity to provide clinical services for a large cohort of older persons with HIV, (2) active screening programs to detect HIV in older persons, and (3) implementation of strategies to prevent forward transmission of HIV from older persons.

This package of training and implementation tools was developed to assist Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) sites and other organizations/clinics to implement the Text Me, Girl! intervention.
A hospital-based clinic affiliated with the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania implemented a multidisciplinary approach to strengthen outreach to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) clients and improve care retention. Clients served with the multidisciplinary approach had higher rates of retention in care.
