Older people are the fastest growing group in the UK living with HIV. There are now up to 25,000 older people living with HIV in the UK, and in the coming years this number will continue to grow as people living with HIV age due to effective treatment and others contract HIV later in life. This group of people will rely more and more on support from formal services such as social care, care homes and sheltered housing as they age.
