Blood-borne Viruses Blood-borne viruses (BBVs) include hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV. If untreated, HIV can cause Acquired Immuno-deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). BBVs are passed from person to person through blood-to-blood Blood Borne Viruses. HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C are the 3 main blood borne viruses (BBVs) and are generally transmitted sexually or by direct exposure to infected blood or other body fluids contaminated with infected blood.. Infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). 3 Bloodborne Pathogens: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) Some common types of bloodborne viruses include: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) — This is the virus responsible for causing acquired immunodeficiency virus (AIDS). AIDS is almost universally fatal and there is no cure. It is estimated that about 50,000 people will contract HIV each year The pathogens of primary concern are the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV). Workers and employers should take advantage of available engineering controls and work practices to prevent exposure to blood and other body fluids
HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) — A virus that attacks the body's immune system, and that, if untreated, can lead to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). Three Main Routes of Bloodborne Pathogen Transmission in the Workplace. There are a few different ways that bloodborne pathogens can be transmitted Blood borne viruses (BBVs) are viruses that are carried in the blood and are spread from one person to another. They can be transmitted through infected blood, exposure to contaminated blood products, unsterile injecting practices, sexual contact, failures in infection control in healthcare, mother to child transmission, and unsterile tattooing. The viruses which get transmitted through water and food are mostly self- limited resulting in acute illness with full resolution. The blood borne viruses (B, C) are villainous and notorious to persist in the body for long, induce scarring, liver cancer and liver cirrhosis. The most common types of hepatitis can be prevented or treated The incidence of blood-borne viral infections has increased in Ireland in recent years. In the health-care setting, it is well documented that health-care workers are at risk of infection by blood-borne viruses. Patients may also be at risk of infection from an infected health-care worker
The main blood-borne viruses of concern are the Human Immunodeficiency Virus(HIV), Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. BBVs can also be passed from an infected mother to her baby. The prevalence of transmissible blood-borne viral infections is quite high globally, especially in developing countries The First National Blood Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections Research Strategy 2021-2025. The First National Blood Borne Viruses (BBV) and Sexually Transmissible Infections (STI) Research Strategy (the Strategy) will ensure that future funded research activities best align with the priorities of the BBV and STI research agenda and support measurable progress towards the goals.

They are passed between people through: sharing of any injecting equipment including spoons, filters and water unprotected sex - heterosexual or homosexual unsterile medical treatment or unsterile body piercing/tattoo
The Blood Borne Virus/STI teamThe blood-borne viruses and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) team is responsible for surveillance and control activities for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV, syphilis, chlamydia and other sexually transmitted infections. As these are all largely preventable by avoiding risks, and in the case of hepatitis B, by vaccination, we work with a wide range of partners.

Blood-borne infection refers to infectious diseases and viruses that may be transmitted through blood and other body fluids. The main risk of occupationally-acquired, blood-borne infection relates to viruses that persist in the blood. The blood-borne viruses that are of most concern are Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and the Huma . The four main types of virus include: Icosahedral - the outer shell (capsid) is made from 20 flat sides, which gives a spherical shape. Most viruses are icosahedral.

Blood Borne Virus in patients under the care of a Consultant Nephrologist. Blood borne virus (BBV) infection was recognised as an important hazard for patients and staff of renal units in the 1960s. The incidence of Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) in dialysis units has fallen over the last 3 decades Among the 35 million health workers worldwide, about 3 million experience percutaneous exposures to bloodborne pathogens each year; two million of those to HBV, 0.9 million to HCV and 170 000 to HIV. These injuries may result in 15 000 HCV, 70 000 HBV and 1 000 HIV infections. More than 90% of these infections occur in developing countries Publisher: NHS Education for Scotland (NES) Type: Video Audience: Nursing, midwifery and allied health professions (audience) Nursing, midwifery and allied health professions (audience Blood-borne virus This service is available if you have been diagnosed with a blood-borne virus, this includes partners, family and carers of those infected.
