Organ Donor Card in walletNew York — Some health officials would like to lift a ban on H.I.V infected organ donors.  The law which was enacted in 1988 prevents doctors from transplanting organs from H.I.V positive patients to other patients who are already infected.

Many H.I.V.  patients suffer kidney damage, either from medications or the virus itself. With a growing need for organ donors, some doctors hope that the infected patients can serve as donors for other infected patients, as well as non-infected patients potentially in the future.

“We would like to see as many safe transplants occurring as possible, and there’s no reason why H.I.V.-positive recipients shouldn’t get transplants and that H.I.V.-positive donors can’t be used,” said Dr. Matthew Kuehnert, who directs the C.D.C.’s Office of Blood, Organ and Other Tissue Safety.
