Remarkable progress made in confronting the global HIV epidemic offers a unique opportunity to address the increasing threat of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in people living with HIV (PLHIV), especially as they age. Using a consensus process and contextual reviews to assess current evidence and experience, we will present the current evidence, gaps in knowledge and recommended research questions which, if addressed, can lead to effective integrated HIV/NCD care for PLHIV and eventually, can be scaled up to address other chronic diseases for the entire population. Two panels will give insight into how adapting and enhancing health system components, such as policy, supply chain, economics and partnerships could achieve sustainable integrated care. The panels will also present current models of integrated chronic care and prevention and highlight what research is needed for implementation and scale up to be successful.
