Listen to “HIV CONFERENCE, THE LARGEST, UNDERSCORES CONTINUED INNOVATION IN HIV CARE” on Spreaker.
The 24th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2022) in July, the world’s largest gathering on HIV, will bring together scientists, industry leaders, advocates and community members to discuss the latest in HIV research.
Incredible advancements have been made in HIV care since the beginning of the epidemic, and today, people living with HIV who have access to medication can expect to live as long as the general population.1 With nearly half of people living with HIV in the U.S. over the age of 50, HIV research and treatment efforts have shifted to consider how to optimize care over the long-term and reduce the number of medications in a complete regimen.2
New data at AIDS 2022 will focus on innovative treatment options that address these considerations and meet the evolving needs of the HIV community. Data include two-drug regimens that reduce the number of antiretroviral medicines people are exposed to every day and treatments for long-term survivors who have developed resistance to other HIV therapies.
Dr. Harmony Garges, Chief Medical Officer at ViiV Healthcare, discuss key data from the conference, HIV care as patients grow older and where treatment may be headed next.
