Transplanting kidneys between people with HIV is safe
People with HIV and end-stage kidney disease can safely receive a kidney transplant from an HIV-positive deceased donor. This finding from a study conducted by the HOPE in Action team indicates that the kidney donor pool for people with HIV who are awaiting a new organ can be expanded. This is particularly welcome news because as the HIV population ages, kidney disease among them will only rise.
