50 plus and living with HIV?

Health Wealth and Happiness

Over 50s are now the fastest-growing group of people living with HIV.

Modern HIV treatment means that many people with HIV are living long, healthy lives.

Nearly three in 10 people accessing HIV-related care were aged 50 or over at the end of 2014 – compared with one in eight in 2003.

In 2010, when little evidence existed, we partnered with Age UK and The Joseph Rowntree Foundation and published a report, A National Study of Ageing and HIV (50 Plus) [PDF]. This examined the needs and concerns of older people living with HIV as they face older age. Recognising the changing health and social care landscape, we conducted some more research in 2016 which informed our latest report – Uncharted Territory [PDF].

Both reports showed that older people with HIV can be disadvantaged in a wide range of ways – from poorer health and loneliness, to social care issues and financial problems.

Our research has helped us to create and develop the Health, Wealth and Happiness project. The project supports the financial, emotional and physical wellbeing of over 50s living with HIV in Brighton and London.
