Research Paper Question?
Dec 17, 1997

Hi, I don't think that mandatory testing should be enforced, and I am in the process of doing a small research paper on the subject of AIDS testing in the workplace. Where could I get statistics on infections related to contact with health workers or are there any? Thanks

If you are looking for more in depth information about HIV transmission in the healthcare field you may want to contact the National Campaign for Healthcare Worker Safety at
