Survey to find out more about over-50s and HIV
Sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust and Age Concern are carrying out a survey into the experiences of people with HIV who are over 50.
Results from the research, titled 50Plus, will be used to help develop support services for both older people and those with HIV.
The survey is open until January 4th, and volunteers can complete questionnaires on paper or online.
The anonymous questionnaire asks a series of questions about the participant’s life, hopes and concerns. There is a random prize draw for two people, who will each get £100 of shopping vouchers.
Lisa Power, head of policy at Terrence Higgins Trust, said: “Currently, we know we could be doing more for people over 50 with HIV, whether someone is newly diagnosed or has been living with the virus for decades. People need support in various ways and we want to ensure that service changes are based on the genuine needs of people over 50 with HIV, not on someone’s best guess. We hope to get as many people as possible filling the survey in.”
