Everyone living with HIV and other episodic disabilities, whether young or old, is aging. Aging increases the chances that you live with multiple chronic health conditions which cause disability and need to be managed at the same time.

The resources in this section provide information on how to maintain good overall health and quality of life while aging with HIV and other chronic health conditions.
