The effectiveness of HIV treatment means that increasingly we need to consider the impact of HIV as we get older.

The information on these pages is intended to help people living with HIV, and those who care for them, to:

  • Understand the range of issues which may arise while living with HIV long term
  • Understand the impact of HIV and HIV medications on the ageing process
  • Engage in informed dialogue with their doctor or other healthcare providers about their healthcare 
  • Make lifestyle changes in order to minimise the risk of developing problems associated with ageing
  • Optimise their use of treatment and healthcare services and minimise any side-effects from HIV treatment.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
