Recommended Treatment Strategies for Clinicians Managing Older Patients with HIV

If there is one constant in the field of HIV medicine, it is that of constant change. The science of HIV is an ever changing landscape of new research findings, new medications with new targets and also new side effects. 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.

A group of 88 people living with HIV (PLH) and hospitalized for COVID-19 in New York City was compared to a similar group with COVID-19 but without HIV.
