26. HIV Infections. Considerations of a general nature, and irrespective of symptomatology, include:
Extent of disease and subsequent deterioration
although some individuals with HIV may remain asymptomatic for years, there is a substantial risk of developing significant and limiting clinical disease;
the deterioration is difficult to predict for each individual and it may occur suddenly and rapidly; and
the medical services available in all locales may not be adequate to manage this deterioration.
(Current) ability to perform MOC tasks
the direct constitutional and neurological effects of HIV infections, the medical follow-up, and the monitoring of the side-effects of drugs, as well the secondary effects of associated neoplasms and opportunistic infections could adversely affect a member's ability to fully perform the tasks and duties of his / her MOC; and
chronic fatigue, excessive weight loss, persistent diarrhea, anaemia and dementia must be assessed as limiting factors for full employability.
Risk to the Individual
because of a deficient immune system, the member with HIV is susceptible to opportunistic infections which vary in prevalence throughout the world;
similarly these members are not candidates for some vaccines (live) which would otherwise be protective, and even with attenuated vaccines, an appropriate immune response is not guaranteed; and
the opportunistic infections (e.g., TB) which they might acquire may also pose a risk of infection to coworkers.
frequent care by a GDMO and / or specialists may be required, particularly when laboratory parameters are abnormal;
the sophisticated diagnostic testing required may only be available within fourth line facilities; and
as new treatment regimes are developed, they are generally only available in tertiary centres and could be of an experimental nature.
