Transmission
& Prevention
11. Am I at risk of becoming infected with HIV when visiting the doctor or dentist?

Transmission of HIV in a health care setting is extremely rare.

All health professionals are required to follow infection control procedures when caring for any patient.

These procedures are called universal precautions for infection control.

They are designed to protect both patients and health care workers from the transmission of blood-borne diseases such as hepatitis B and HIV.
