Impacting the Graying of HIV & AIDS
A "Conversations with GIA" webinar
This webinar looked at the changing face of HIV and aging, including how HIV manifests among older adults, with emphasis on its impact on diverse racial, ethnic, and geographical communities. It reviewed the impact funders and their community partners are already making, including what interventions have been most effective in addressing health disparities and what additional strategies are needed to improve outcomes for older people affected by HIV. The webinar also delved into how these issues play out at the federal policy level, tying policy change back to the lived experiences of older people and the most effective “on the ground” interventions.
