The development of highly effective antiretroviral treatment has significantly decreased the disease burden and increased the life expectancy of people living with HIV. As people with HIV live longer, they will require ongoing HIV specialty and primary care, which will increase the demand for specialty-trained nurse practitioners and other health care workers. This report describes the emerging HIV provider shortage and offers models to expand nurse practitioner training in HIV primary care as an approach to addressing the HIV provider shortage.
