This session addresses the increasing challenge of non-communicable disease (NCD) co-morbidities as they become a more frequent occurrence in people living with HIV (PLWH) in low and middle income countries. These co-morbidities can affect quality of life or survival in PLWH, even when their HIV is well controlled. The fours talks will provide an update on burden of NCDs in PLWH with emphasis on Africa, common pathways linking HIV to different NCD co-morbidities, and current efforts to provide NCD service integration for PLWH and what can be achieved through disease screening and prevention to forestall NCDs in PLWH.

The session is targeted towards clinicians and public health practitioners that are faced with HIV as a chronic disease. Participants will develop an understanding of the many co-morbidities affecting PLWH and of approaches to addressing these.
