Today people living with HIV are faced with the prospect of something that was unheard of just 30 years ago – the potential to live a long life with controlled infection. For the first time the HIV community will encounter the same future opportunities and hurdles as everyone else.
This great achievement raises one big question: is simply living longer enough? The effects of long-term antiretroviral treatment and natural progression of age-related conditions are all part of the new reality of HIV as long-term chronic condition. HIV can no longer be just about prolonging life. For the HIV community, today’s challenge is making sure longer life goes hand in hand with a healthier life.
This is where the HIV: The Long View initiative comes from. It aims to understand the key changes affecting the overall healthcare landscape to uncover how we can ensure a lifetime of good health for people living with HIV. Our goal is to help set up the long-term vision for the HIV community and identify what needs to be done today to make sure it happens.
Today we face huge opportunities that could change healthcare for the better, but we’re also encountering issues that could prove to be challenging. The probability of a healthier future for people living with HIV will be impacted by how we respond to new challenges and opportunities today.
