Objective data on sleep in persons living with HIV (PLWH) are lacking. This POPPY sub-study aims to characterise sleep patterns in older and younger individuals living with HIV.  The study is recruiting 250 PLWH >50 years of age, 125 PLWH <50 years of age and 125 HIV negative controls >50 years of age.  All participants will undergo overnight oximetry (1 night), actigraphy (7 days and nights) and cognitive testing, will complete the study sleep questionnaire and diary, and will participate in a brief medical history interview with clinical measurements and blood sample collection.
