Maine Confronts Aging Population With HIV/AIDS
September 23, 2013
The U.S. Senate Aging Committee heard testimony on September 18, the sixth annual National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day, from five witnesses testifying about the challenges facing aging HIV-infected people. Witnesses noted that states with large aging HIV-infected populations experienced greater impact than other states. According to Kenneth Miller, executive director of Maine's Down East AIDS Network, older HIV-infected people who lived in rural areas faced complicated health issues, including lack of access to medical care and mental health treatment.
