The course is for medical professionals and young researchers with national and international projection, and senior researchers and doctors, with a special interest in the elderly population with HIV infection.

Information

This interactive, theoretical, and practical in-person course focuses on aging in patients with HIV infection. Spanning over 12 instructional hours spread across 2 days, participants will engage in a comprehensive learning experience.

Advancements in antiretroviral treatment have allowed individuals living with HIV to have a life expectancy similar to the general population. However, aging in this group presents unique challenges due to the chronic inflammation caused by the infection and the potential side effects of antiretroviral medications. Although there is still much to learn, it is recognized that comorbidities and the aging process may be more significant in people with HIV. It is important to address the management of these individuals in a comprehensive and multidisciplinary manner, considering their specific needs and focusing on improving their quality of life.
