National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day

September 18, 2019

Worldwide, an estimated 3.6 million people aged 50+ are living with HIV. 

The prevalence of HIV among older adults is reaching staggering rates. About 1 in 4 adults in the United States who are living with HIV infection are aged 50 or older. 18% of new HIV diagnoses occur among those aged 50 and older.

With advanced treatment options, HIV positive individuals are living longer lives. However, the interactions between aging and degeneration caused by HIV have become a public health concern that needs to generate appropriate awareness and education.
