Cancer risk among adults living with HIV in Ontario


Cancer is an important comorbidity and healthcare concern for people living with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Researchers have quantified the burden of cancer among people living with HIV in Ontario using administrative and registry-linked data held at ICES. Findings showed that although cancer incidence has declined over time, people living with HIV remain at a greater risk for cancers with infectious causes compared with HIV-negative people. There is a need for comprehensive HIV care that includes cancer prevention strategies.
