Abstract

As a result of the successful treatment of HIV over the last four decades, people living with HIV (PLWH) can now expect a near normal life expectancy1. This change in demographic alongside later life acquisition of HIV2, has resulted in clinical services now seeing an older HIV cohort, with patients experiencing many of the problems of an older HIV-negative cohort such as multiple medical diagnoses, polypharmacy and frailty.
