What do you think about hiv and sports. Should players who have it be allowed to play.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

It depends on the sport! Virtually all sports have no risk of blood to blood contact. The only one I would worry about is actually boxing because of the blood that is often shed. Most other sports should be safe. Practice safe sports! DTD
