US guidelines for management of older people living with HIV (2011)
The American Academy of HIV Medicine (AAHIVM), the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) and the AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA) has released the first clinical treatment strategies for managing older HIV patients: The HIV and Ageing Consensus Project: Recommended Treatment Strategies for Clinicians Managing Older Patients with HIV.
The executive summary and full guidelines are both available to download in PDF format.
The report is part of the organisations’ HIV and Ageing Consensus Project, developed to assess how the presence of both HIV and common age-associated diseases, alter the optimal treatment of HIV as well as other co-morbidities. The purpose of the report, developed by a panel of experts with experience both in the fields of HIV and Geriatrics, is to provide best practice guidance for HIV practitioners and other health care providers who treat, diagnose and refer older patients with HIV disease.
