About half of all Persons Living with HIV are aged 50 or older. They will not only face a future of sustained adherence to medication and treatment regimens linked to their infection, but they are also likely to experience multiple comorbidities and cognitive impairment that could affect their ability to function.
The overarching goal of this conference is to expand research on the intersection of HIV and Aging – from the most basic to the most applied levels – and to move the science forward in these areas. This conference will focus on Population Determinants of Health in Persons Aging with HIV, specifically the biological, clinical, and social/behavioral determinants of health in older persons with HIV. In addition, we are requesting abstracts related to the risk/relationship of HIV for Covid-19 and the impact of Covid-19 on older persons with HIV.General Guidelines for Submission of Abstracts
Podium abstracts will be selected that best exemplify the focus on biological, clinical, or social/behavioral determinants of health in older persons with HIV. In addition, abstracts related to the risk/relationship of HIV for Covid-19 and impact of Covid-19 on older persons with HIV are encouraged. Abstracts derived from research that is completed or in progress are preferred; such work can include bench, translational, interventional, or health services research but may also include systematic literature reviews. Abstracts proposing future work or conceptual/theoretical frameworks that might serve as the platform for future work will also be considered. Abstracts from students/trainees are encouraged.
