Brianna Doby works for the NIH-funded HOPE (HIV Organ Policy Equity) in Action study at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Brianna is the Donation Community Consultant on the study team and supports organ procurement organizations in all aspects of HIV+ transplantation and donation, from donor registration to family approach to public education.
Is HIV an automatic rule-out for donation? Not necessarily! A disease that was once considered a death sentence and, therefore, an automatic exclusion for organ donation can now make a world of difference for potential transplant recipients living with HIV. Focusing on the procurement phase, this webinar will explore best practices for identifying and managing HIV+ donors, and provide guidelines for navigating the authorization, allocation, and recovery processes.
