One objective of the Aging Well Program is to empower long-term survivors with the information we need to live life more fully. Another objective is to help providers, policy makers, allied professionals, and the extended community understand the unique strengths, needs, and experiences of aging adults living with or affected by HIV.

We invite you to join us as we continue to develop the collection of resources within this section to give readers an in-depth look at the history and present-day issues affecting our community.

Over the next year we’ll continue to develop a small library of well-reviewed fact sheets, research reports, and articles. Plus, we’ll refine our timeline that tells the history of HIV from the first days of the epidemic in 1981 through today. What’s missing? What do you think needs to be added? Finally, we’ll grow our glossary of terms to help us talk to each other, respectfully and well-informed.

Please join us in this project! Let us know if you’d like to be part of this project, and send us suggestions for resources that you’d like to see posted.

These well reviewed resources are the beginning to our growing library of information.
Key moments in the history of HIV/AIDS.

We present this glossary of terms to help us talk to each other, respectfully and well-informed.

We welcome your participation!
