The Aging Well with HIV Manual is for people aging with chronic HIV. It describes common health problems that come with chronic HIV infection. Since many of these problems cannot be cured at present, the manual focuses on how to manage them, so that you can age well despite them. To keep the manual easy to read, we limit each chapter to 3 sections:
The manual leaves out contents you do not need. For example, it does not include tests that will be ordered, or pills used to treat the disease. This is because your doctor will figure these out with you. You can download the manual to read on your computer, email it to others, or print it out on paper. Each chapter makes sense by itself, so you do not have to read every chapter from the beginning. You can pick the chapters that apply to you, and read in any order you like. Read the manual before going to the doctor, so you know which questions to ask. We welcome your comments and questions. Please send them to email@example.com.
The manual was created by Dr. Aroonsiri Sangarlangkarn and Dr. Jonathan S. Appelbaum. Dr. Aroonsiri Sangarlangkarn is a geriatrics fellow with a focus on HIV and aging at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. Dr. Jonathan S. Appelbaum is a professor of Internal Medicine at Florida State University College of Medicine, and the co-principal investigator of the HIV and Aging Consensus Project, a joint effort of the American Academy of HIV Medicine (AAHIVM), the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) and the AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA).
