Description

This volume focuses on the ways in which HIV/AIDS can affect older adults. The chapters in this book discuss the variety of HIV/AIDS problems that we face at the individual, family, and community levels. Topics examined include demographics and epidemiological aspects of HIV disease with this population; prevention of HIV disease; issues impacting individuals in a medical, psychological, and social context; and service needs. Originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Mental Health and Aging, the volume contains new chapters on demographics, HIV prevention and education, and effective coalition building among systems of care. Contributors include Diane Zablotsky, Michael Kennedy, Janice Nichols, and Timothy Heckman, among others.
