With current treatments, the life expectancy of people living with HIV is no different from that of the general population. As a result, the proportion of older patients with the disease is growing.

Estimates indicate that annually, more than 100,000 patients over the age of 50 years are diagnosed with HIV worldwide. Therefore, healthcare providers need to understand the unique clinical challenges observed in older adults living with HIV. Some of these challenges include management of patients’ comorbidities, potential drug interactions between antiretrovirals and other pharmacotherapies, complications related to HIV, cognitive impairment, and the potential need for geriatric care and psychosocial interventions.
