Patients with HIV have a life expectancy nearly equal to that of the general population, which means that clinicians must not only manage long-standing HIV but also recognize common comorbidities, such as cardiovascular disease, renal disease, osteoporosis or low bone mineral density, and neurocognitive disorders.
