160736 - New Frontiers in HIV

  • : Online


This activity will assist HIV care providers in providing optimal care, in respect to how PLHIV are having avoidable risk factors managed.

Relevance to General Practice

HIV GP community prescribers are responsible for managing the clinical needs for the majority of PLHIV in Australia. Advice obtained from recent Gilead advisory meetings highlighted that doctors felt there were still educational gaps with respect to the four topics being discussed at this meeting; immune dysfunction, inflammation, drug resistance and aging. In particular it is now estimated that more than 5000 PLHIV in Australia are over the age of 65 years and as PLHIV are at increased risk of non-AIDS related co-morbidities and that these conditions appear earlier, it is critical to understand some of the underlying mechanisms by which this occurs, such as inflammation and immune dysfunction. Despite advances in ARV development, drug resistance is still an issue for some patients that can result in negative health outcomes if not identified and appropriate treatments provided to prevent loss of virological control, further driving heightened inflammation and immune dysfunction.
