HHS Transplant Update

HHS Announces New Organ Transplant Guidance

Jul 08, 2020 | Julia Zigman

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Public Health Service recently published an updated solid organ transplant guideline to assess donors and monitor recipients for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus, and hepatitis C virus infections. Changes include updated criteria for identifying donors at risk for undetected donor HIV, HBV, or HCV infection; the removal of any specific term to characterize donors with HIV, HBV, or HCV infection risk factors; universal organ donor HIV, HBV, and HCV nucleic acid testing; and universal posttransplant monitoring of transplant recipients for HIV, HBV, and HCV infections.

Find the updated guidelines and read more on HIV.gov.
