Overview

Prevention of HIV exposure is the best way to prevent occupational transmission of HIV. There is no vaccine available to develop specific immunity and the post-exposure prophylaxis is toxic.
Follow standard precautions and other appropriate workplace practices to prevent injury from needles, scalpels, and other sharp objects and exposure of mucous membranes and abraded skin to HIV-infected blood or body fluids.
