Aging, HIV, and Health Equity: Towards a Vision of Healthy Aging for All



December 6, 2023


The Paley Center for Media, NYC

11:25–11:40am EST

As people around the world age and live longer with chronic disease, how do we ensure access to healthcare that supports life through all stages? Today, more than half of the people living with HIV in the U.S. are now over the age of 50. When we think of aging populations living with chronic conditions such as HIV, what are the current policy conversations happening at the intersection of aging, health equity, and innovation? What role can we all play in cultivating a healthcare system that supports healthy aging? This session will examine how to build a more equitable healthcare system and create policies and partnerships needed to support healthy aging for all.
