ROSSOUW, T M; VAN ROOYEN, M; LOUW, J M  y  RICHTER, K L. Blood-borne infections in healthcare workers in South Africa. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.104, n.11, pp. 732-735. ISSN 2078-5135.

The risks associated with infection of healthcare workers and students with blood-borne pathogens, specifically HIV, hepatitis B virus and hepatitis C virus, are often neglected. South Africa (SA) currently has no official policies or guidelines in place for the prevention and management of these infections. This article reviews the available data and international guidelines with regard to infected healthcare practitioners and makes minimum recommendations for the SA setting.
