HIV Care Along the Age Spectrum

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) is recommended for all individuals with HIV to reduce morbidity and mortality and to prevent HIV transmission.1 However, challenges may vary in different age populations; for example, psychosocial turmoil may interfere with adherence in young adults while comorbidity may pose significant problems in older adults. Consider barriers to HIV care across the age spectrum, along with potential strategies to help patients of all ages achieve optimal clinical outcomes.
