Awarness DayHIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day is held each year to bring attention to the growing number of people living long and productive lives with HIV/AIDS and to their health and social needs.  In 2016, almost half of people living with diagnosed HIV were 50 or older.   The number of older people living with HIV is increasing because improved treatment (Antiretroviral Treatment (ART) means that people with HIV can live healthier and longer lives.  While the number of people 50 and older who are diagnosed each year is decreasing, thousands of older people are diagnosed with HIV each year.
