Houston's HIV & Aging Coalition was established in August of 2013 to educate our community and agencies about issues and services that affect aging people living with HIV, and to help break down the social isolation many people over fifty living with the infection face. 

Living with HIV presents certain challenges, no matter what your age. But older people with HIV may face different issues than their younger counterparts, including greater social isolation and loneliness. Stigma is also a particular concern among older people with HIV. Stigma negatively affects people’s quality of life, self-image, and behaviors, and may prevent them disclosing their HIV status or seeking HIV care.
