(MEPI-NIH research grant-award Number: D43TW010140). This study was conceived on account of the fact that most elderly patients have more than two chronic diseases (i.e. multimorbidity) which may affect their cognitive ability over a course of time, especially for the elderly who are HIV-positive. This study aims to evaluate one-year incident risk of dementia as well as the association between cognitive impairment and multimorbidity in the elderly patients, comparing those living with HIV with those living without HIV. This is a longitudinal, 3 wave research design. Data collection for the research    commenced in March, 2018(1st wave), second wave (6th month follow-up) data collection is ongoing and last wave (1year follow-up) will commence March 2019. Preliminary reports of analysed data from 1st wave is in progress. (Role: Principal Investigator).
