Insights on HIV care challenges faced by older individuals, and innovative ways to better deliver care, are summarized in Addressing the Health Care and Social Support Needs of People Aging with HIV, a summary of discussion findings from a Fall 2020 Technical Expert Panel convened by HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau.
Sections in the four-page document cover:
- Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) client demographics
- Care considerations (medical, psychosocial, support services)
- Ideas for enhancing services for older persons with HIV (e.g., partnerships with aging care agencies, involvement of older clients in decision-making).
- Steps that RWHAP recipients (funded agencies) can undertake (e.g., planning).
This document is a follow-up to two additional HRSA documents published over the past year: Optimizing HIV Care for People Aging with HIV: Incorporating New Elements of Care and Putting Together the Best Health Care Team
