With the introduction of combination antiretroviral therapy in 1996, HIV infection changed from an inevitably fatal condition to a chronic manageable disease. As aids-associated complications diminished and it became possible for the HIV-infected population to survive into older age, aging –associated comorbidities that are not related to aids have emerged and gained more importance in this population. Judith Schouten investigates whether these non-aids/ageing-associated comorbidities are truly occurring more frequently and at a younger age among properly-treated HIV infected individuals compared to uninfected individuals. She does this through a cohort study of HIV-infected individuals and highly similar uninfected controls of 45 years and above.
