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.
