The statistics clearly state the need to engage and serve HIV Long-Term Survivors (HLTS). Pre-HAART survivors (defined as living with the virus from 1996 and earlier) make up approximately 25% of all people living with HIV. HAART stands for highly active antiretroviral therapy. This does not include all those living with HIV for 15 years and longer after HAART medication changed the landscape.

GMHC Launches the Hub for Long-Term Survivors

The Hub at GMHC is a welcoming and supportive environment for our Long-Term Survivor community. If you’re a Long-Term Survivor, it’s a central place to connect — or reconnect — for services, resources, workshops, and events to learn and socialize — and to know that you’re cared about. Gregg Bruckno is the GMHC’s Long-Term Survivor Specialist.

AIDS Survivor Syndrome and Let’s Kick ASS are sighted in this newly released study.
