HIV/AIDS and Older Adults: Challenges for Individuals, Families, and Communities

Synopsis

There are many ways in which HIV/AIDS can affect older adults. The chapters focus on the variety of HIV/AIDS problems faced at the individual, family, and community levels. Topics examined include demographics and epidemiological aspects of HIV disease with this population, prevention of HIV disease, issues impacting individuals in a medical, psychological, and social context, and service needs. Originally explored in a special issue of the Journal of Mental Health and Aging, this volume contains new chapters on demographics, HIV prevention and education, and effective coalition building among systems of care.
