With an aging HIV population, there is a pressing need for substantive scientific dialog on this topic, particularly since HIV itself may accelerate the aging process. The annual International Workshop on HIV & Aging was founded in 2009 as a unique and focused platform for international scientific exchange on the latest developments and strategies for the future, in an interactive setting.
The latest developments will be reviewed and evaluated in order to identify important topics for future research, develop better approaches to treatment, and create a strategic agenda for future management problems associated with HIV and aging. Improved management of older adults with HIV will require a much deeper understanding of the interface between aging, HIV, associated comorbid conditions, and concurrent treatment. In addition, research is needed to address the unique psychosocial challenges faced by this growing population. Attend and benefit from the opportunity to be informed and to discuss the newest data and their implications.
