HIV and Aging

In 2020, 52 percent of all people living with HIV were 50 years of age or older in Santa Clara County. This is expected to increase given the number of people who can live healthy and longer lives thanks to advances in biomedical sciences.

The Getting to Zero (GTZ) HIV and Aging Program was created to navigate people through the various resources and clinical services that are available to them to live their best life while going through natural aging.
