Preparing for an ageing HIV epidemic

The Lancet HIV

For much of its history, the story of HIV has been that of young lives cut short and children born with an infection that will stop them reaching adulthood. On June 5, 2017, however, HIV Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day was marked worldwide recognising long-term survivors of HIV infection and raising awareness of their specific needs. Long-term survival is part of a broader picture in which the demographic profile of people living with HIV is shifting to ever older ages, which will present new challenges for HIV programmes in the future.
