In particular, HIV clinicians should have up-to-date information that focuses on HIV-specific issues related to diseases of aging. Examples of areas where practice needs to be improved include the understanding and management of conditions such as osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, COPD, cancer, kidney disease, liver disease, and neurocognitive issues.
