HIV & Aging update with Jenny Hoy

In late September we were lucky enough to host Jenny Hoy for an information session around HIV and ageing, following on from a super-charged month of events with the 24th International AIDS Conference and the Joint Australasian HIV&AIDS + Sexual Health Conferences. The recording is now available to watch online.

Jenny is the Director of HIV Medicine at the Department of Infectious Diseases at The Alfred Hospital, and she expertly guided us through some of the latest findings relating to HIV and ageing. First up, she shared data relating to older men with HIV who have sex with other men and the reduction in acquiring an STI after the adoption of Doxy PEP. This is followed by an overview od some of the latest findings on anal cancer – another emerging area of concern for older people with HIV. Other topics covered are metabolic changes and anti-HIV treatments, cure, and quality of life.

For more information on women and ageing, and in particular the topic of menopause, you can view the online recording of ’Menopause and Women Living with HIV‘. This webinar was hosted by Positive Women Victoria and features expert panellist Dr Nneka Nwokolo. Dr Nwokolo is Head of Global Patient Affairs at ViiV Healthcare and an honorary Consultant Physician in Sexual Health and HIV Medicine at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London. She has specialised knowledge and clinical experience in menopause and living with HIV. In the session, Dr Nwokolo outlines the latest research concerning menopause, including HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy), and answers questions.
