Developing a Research Agenda for HIV and Aging

Leading researchers in the fields of geriatrics and HIV met in late October to discuss the interface of HIV,  the aging process and areas needing more research to successfully treat the growing population of older adults living with HIV/AIDS.

Attendees also included representatives from the National Institute on Aging and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Both agencies will play a critical role in implementing the research agenda developed at the conference.

The Association of Specialty Professors (ASP), HIVMA, and IDSA co-sponsored the workshop, which took place in Arlington, Virginia. Workshop presentations covered topics ranging from metabolic and co-morbidity implications of HIV and aging, to drug treatment and adherence issues for older adults with HIV/AIDS.

The workshop was funded by the John A. Hartford Foundation as part of an ASP Project "Integrating Geriatrics into the Specialties of Internal Medicine: Moving Forward from Awareness to Action."
