World Blood Donor Day

14th of June, WHO is calling on people all around the globe to give blood in a gesture of solidarity on World Blood Donor Day 2022

Safe blood and blood products and their transfusion are a critical aspect of care and public health. They are key in treating people suffering from a range of diseases and as a result of accidents, natural disasters and armed conflict. The need for blood is universal, but access to it is limited – especially in low- and middle-income countries, where shortages particularly impact women and children as these tend to be the people who need blood most.
