- To define the optimal evaluation of living donors to mitigate against infectious disease transmission, with a focus on HIV, HBV, and HCV
- To define the optimal timing, content, and method of informed consent of candidates considering accepting an organ from a donor at increased risk of HIV, HBV, and HCV transmission
- To develop consensus on the optimal evaluation of recipients of organs from donors at increased risk of HIV, HBV, and HCV transmission
