Description

Scott Wiener gives an overview of the epidemiology of HIV infection in San Francisco, acknowledging the successes that have allowed people to live with HIV for longer, resulting in a large population of aging HIV-infected people in the city. Roughly half of the HIV-infected population in San Francisco is composed of individuals above age 50. San Francisco has provided a model for treating and retaining patients in care.
