Current Guideline for Organ Transplants

In June 2020, the U.S. Public Health Service published a new guideline, U.S. PHS Guideline, Assessing Solid Organ Donors and Monitoring Transplant Recipients for Human Immunodeficiency Virus, Hepatitis B Virus, and Hepatitis C Virus Infection.

The Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) developed policies for organ procurement organizations and transplant centers based on these recommendations. The policies were implemented in early 2021, with a subsequent revision of 1 recommendation published in 2022.

A list of previous guidelines and other publications by year is available.
