Scientific advances over the last decade have drastically altered the HIV landscape in a positive way. People living with HIV are living longer, but they are also living with the long-term health challenges of HIV, treatments, aging and concurrent health conditions. The aim of this session is to raise awareness of HIV and disability, share knowledge about the role of physiotherapy, exercise and rehabilitation in HIV care, and to highlight existing research and discuss future research opportunities.
