In addition to new populations affected by the epidemic, as the elderly, there is the ever demanding goal of seeking an actual cure for HIV disease.

HIV & Aging: Journal Articles

For a number of years HRSA has sponsored the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program. The funding has focused on HIV management, specifically achieving sustained viral load suppression.  It has been very successful by not only addressing medical issues but also “Wraparound Services” such as  housing, nutrition, case management etc. 

In a study from Madrid 77,590 HIV-positive persons on antiretroviral therapy (ART) were followed for outcomes over 75 days. Of this group, 236 developed documented COVID-19, and 151 were hospitalized.

In a cohort study in New York City 30 hospitalized people living with HIV (PLWH) were compared to 90 similar patients without HIV for effects of COVID-19.
