Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: This study reviews the existing literature on the prevention of HIV among older adults, including universal and indicated prevention programs and prevention strategies. METHOD: A literature search was conducted between September and October of 2011 to identify studies for this review. Several different electronic databases and a combination of keywords were used to conduct the search. In addition, the reference section of each article was reviewed for additional articles. RESULTS: A total of 18 articles were identified and reviewed. Three of the articles examined universal prevention, five of the articles examined indicated prevention, and the remainder of the articles provided strategies and recommendations for the prevention of HIV among older adults. DISCUSSION: The existing studies document evidence for preventing future cases of HIV/AIDS among older adults. Additional studies and universal and selected interventions are needed in an effort to reduce the number of older adults being diagnosed with HIV.
