HIV and Aging Program
The UCSF HIV and Aging Program focuses on the special needs of people over the age of 50 who are living with chronic HIV infection. Thanks to advances in HIV treatments, people with HIV are living longer. In fact, older adults are one of the fastest growing demographic groups among HIV and AIDS patients. However, adults with HIV often develop multiple medical conditions that need specialized care.
Our program is committed to maintaining our patients' health and enhancing their long-term quality of life by providing comprehensive care from UCSF doctors, dietitians, pharmacists and social workers, all of whom specialize in treating HIV and AIDS.
The program, which is part of the UCSF HIV/AIDS Program, is also actively researching issues affecting older HIV patients, such as the causes of increased cardiovascular disease.
