Jessica Yasmine Islam speaks with ecancer at AACR 2017 about the changing burden of disease for HIV citizens who develop cancer.

She notes the increased availability of life-extending anti-retroviral drugs, resulting in HIV patients living long enough to increase their risk of developing non-AIDS related cancers, and that by 2030 over 20% of HIV patients are projected to live over 65 years.
