Our Living Well: 50+ project aims to ensure that older people living with HIV have access to the highest attainable standard of health and well-being. We will achieve this by continuing our work in involving people living with HIV and the wider community to help identify the most pressing issues:

The project will:

  • Establish a forum of older people living with HIV to help inform the project;
  • Host a series of expert seminars on health-related quality of life, social isolation, and stigma-free services;
  • Train HIV champions in social care to promote evidence-based best practice;
  • Deliver online resources and factsheets, and;
  • Produce a detailed Action Plan with innovative and forward-thinking solutions to the challenges older people living with HIV experience.
