Fifty Over 50: A collection of individual reflections on growing older with HIV

Are you living with HIV and 50 years old or over? Would you be willing to talk to us about your own experience and help start a conversation about people’s needs as they get older?

Fifty Over 50: a collection of individual reflections on growing older with HIV’ is a new campaign where fifty people aged 50 and over will share their experiences of growing older with HIV in the UK. We hope to identify the changes necessary for people living with HIV to live well throughout mid and later life.

What is involved in taking part?

A researcher will talk to you about your personal experience of living with HIV. It will take around an hour and they will contact you by phone or video call, whichever you prefer. They won’t use your name or any information that identifies you unless you tell us that’s ok. And they will offer you £50 as a thank you for your time.
