People living with HIV are living longer, full lives due to the effectiveness of continuous antiretroviral therapy (ART). While continuing to attend to the unique challenges of stigma and the social determinants of health experienced among many people living with HIV, we must also turn our attention towards the prevention and management of comorbidities and strategies to promote healthy aging.
The Living with HIV (LHIV) Innovation Team seeks to advance primary health care for persons living with HIV to help address these new challenges. Our engaged team includes health services researchers, clinicians, people with lived experience and policy makers.
We are focusing our research and knowledge exchange activities by working to enhance the role of primary health care to support people living with HIV. We are doing this by harnessing eHealth technologies, optimizing the patient experience and self-management and defining what measures are needed to promote a more integrated model of care.
