Blood Borne Infections
Blood borne infections (BBIs) are viruses that are carried in the blood, specifically hepatitis B, hepatitis C and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). They can be transmitted through sexual contact, sharing needles, needle-stick injuries, from mother to baby during pregnancy, during birth or through breast feeding. BBIs may also exist in other body fluids. We provide public health workers with expertise, support and resources for the prevention and control of BBIs.
