As more and more people live and grow older with HIV, the EATG explores the biological and social consequences of living with HIV from childhood to older ages.
Project aims: To address the challenges and the unmet needs of PLHIV in a life cycle perspective. The project is divided into 3 phases (1. PLHIV aged 50+, 2. Children and adolescents and 3. PLHIV for more than 10 years aged 18-40). Each phase will help drive the scientific, policy and capacity building agenda within EATG. The main activities are webinars and international conferences related to each phase.
We expect from the implementation of this project to increase awareness within the patient community, researchers, healthcare providers and other key stakeholders of the unmet clinical and psychosocial needs of PLHIV/AIDS at different stages in their lives, and to identify advocacy priorities in the HIV and ageing domain.
