We can’t talk about aging and HIV (and other sexually transmitted infections) without talking about sex! There is a general discomfort with sexual issues in the U.S. across the lifecycle; and, talking with older adults can be even more taboo. However, we know that LGBT older adults have the right to express their sexuality, regardless of age, and/or sexual orientation and gender identity.

This fact sheet will provide the reader with basic information about the prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STI), including HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus).
