Aging with HIV: Long, healthy lives are possible with treatment (Dr. Julio Montaner)
FOR healthcare practitioners working in the field of HIV, the past three decades have been a rollercoaster, says Dr. Julio Montaner, Head of UBC’s Division of AIDS and Director of the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS (BC-CfE). Once a death sentence, HIV is now regarded as a chronic, manageable condition. So much so that on Dec. 1, World AIDS Day, the B.C.-CfE will unveil Healthy Aging With HIV, an initiative to better understand how to maximize the longevity of people living with HIV.
