Doctors to transplant kidneys from HIV-positive donors to HIV-positive patients

Doctors to transplant kidneys from HIV-positive donors to HIV-positive patients
- The problem that is faced with transplantation is that we don’t have enough donors,” said Dr. Maricar Malinis of Yale, principal investigator and director of transplant infectious diseases at Yale New Haven Hospital. “The supply and demand is not well balanced.” Transplants from HIV-positive donors was not allowed until passage of the federal HIV Organ Policy Equity Act. Before the HOPE Act passed in 2013, South Africa was the only country transplanting organs from HIV-positive donors, Malinis said.
