For more information on this session, including access to speaker presentations, please see the conference Programme-at-a-Glance.

Adults 50+ living with HIV and those newly diagnosed often experience unique health challenges beyond HIV. This session will discuss what is required to address these increasing medical and psychosocial challenges among adults 50+ living with or newly diagnosed with HIV. It will review epidemiological data and discuss the medical and psychosocial needs and challenges of managing as well as preventing HIV in this specific population. The epidemiological review will cover new infections in those 50+, trends in non-AIDS co-morbidity, global data and data gaps. Analysis of medical and psychological needs and challenges will include interaction with other chronic co-morbidity, diagnostics needs, drug interaction as well as stigma, social protection and social determinants of health. The session will also discuss educational needs of this specific population as well as health care providers and will place issues facing adults 50+ living with HIV in the general global context of policy and research on healthy ageing.
