Aging and HIV
- Growing older with HIV can lead to considerations of general age-related medical conditions and increased drug-drug interactions.
- HIV itself may contribute to increased and earlier risk for specific age-associated pathophysiologic conditions.
- People with HIV who are aging may have increased social morbidity in limited social support networks, varying spousal support and legal standing (depending on local laws for relating to same-sex marriage), and may face discrimination in accessing assisted living and other services associated with aging.
