"The large-scale realities of aging with HIV are insufficiently studied and there exist few prevention campaigns, clinical guidelines, demonstration projects or training initiatives aimed at older adults with HIV, especially for older people of color and LGBT older adults."

This issue brief describes the need for an expansion of Medicaid coverage offered through the Affordable Care Act and other policy recommendations related to older adults living with HIV, such as proper training of providers. It also highlights the importance of incorporating and giving consideration to socio/economic and ethnic demographics and disparities.
