The regulations affecting the ability of HIV-positive to work in

the medical professions vary greatly from country to country. As a

general rule, there is no reason why an HIV-positive person should

not be able to pursue a career in a medicine; although they should

normally expect to be prevented from working in certain high-risk

areas and carrying out high-risk or invasive procedures.
