14th International Workshop on HIV and Ageing

26 to 27 October 2023, Washington and hybrid


Simon Collins, HIV i-Base

This year the annual workshop on HIV and ageing was held in Washington DC and included virtual participation. It was the first face-to-face meeting since COVID.

Thr programme included excellent plenary lectures, some of which are reported below, with roughly 20 oral abstracts and 40 posters.

Themes included the multifactorial nature of most age-related medical complications.

  • Defining and measuring frailty.
  • Muscle, bone and fat metabolism as components of a changing body composition.
  • Risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
  • Planning services to meet the needs of older people living with HIV.
  • Whether subclinical neurocognitive changes can be identified – and whether or not this is helpful, in the absence of treatment options.

This issue of HTB includes the following reports from the workshop.
