Person-centred approaches to address the health needs of people living with HIV and co-infections and co-morbidities

Despite advances made by health systems to improve the care of people living with HIV, a higher burden of multi­morbidity and poorer health-related quality of life are reported by many people living with HIV in comparison to people without HIV. Ensuring the best possible quality of life for those living with and affected by HIV by reducing HIV infections and related morbidity and mortality will only be possible through an integrated response to clients' health needs and preferences. Getting care right for people living with and affected by HIV requires a flexible healthcare system that allows people to decide on their degree of self-management. This satellite session will highlight the latest evidence, promising practices, and reflections on the operationalization of person-centred care principles for HIV. It will feature selected publications from the Journal of the International AIDS Society special issue on this topic which will be launched at IAS 2023. This session is addressed at clients, programme planners and implementers, researchers, as well as policy makers.
