    Abstract

    Reports of cross-infection with HIV and hepatitis C during routine surgery in Sydney have refocused attention on preventing transmission of HIV and other blood-borne viruses in the health care setting. This review examines the risks of transmission in medical practice, summarises infection control measures and examines issues regarding the HIV-infected health care worker.
