Research On Older Adults with HIV (ROAH)
January 2006 | ACRIA
“"The highly visible emphasis on preventing HIV transmission in youth and younger adults suppresses the accurate picture of those who now live long lives with this virus."”
The Research on Older Adults with HIV (ROAH) study assessed a 1,000-person cohort in New York City, examining a comprehensive array of issues, including health status, stigma, depression, social networks, spirituality, sexual behavior, and substance abuse. This first-in-the-nation effort has cemented ACRIA’s reputation as the preeminent authority and resource on the fast-growing population of people over fifty living with HIV.
