Abstract

The demographics of the HIV epidemic in the UK have changed significantly. Owing to a steady rate of new diagnoses and improved survival, the population of individuals living with HIV continues to increase. HIV is now widely considered to be a chronic condition and HIV-positive individuals are expected to live into old age. Increasing rates of age-related comorbidities challenge HIV care providers to deliver durable viral suppression, ensure long-term adherence to antiretroviral treatment and promote wellbeing into old age. High rates of mental health disorders and social stigma continue to have a negative impact on the quality of life of people living with HIV. Models of care must adapt to this evolving epidemic.
