Aging with HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa: Health and Psychosocial Perspectives


Across all chapters in this book, the authors have highlighted that ageing with HIV is a recent phenomenon in African countries, made possible by advances in the development of antiretroviral treatments (ART) and advocacy for reduced drug costs. Many of us remember earlier times in the HIV epidemic when ageing after an HIV diagnosis was not in our collective imagination or experience; we should not lose sight of that memory. We can celebrate that ageing with HIV is now possible and should continue to be possible with fair access to treatment, across the world (Beck et al., 2019).
