Regional Blood Donor Center

Introduction

The Pakistan Red Crescent Blood Transfusion Service (BTS) has launched “Safe Blood Program” that embodies the spirit of ‘Altruism’ and the principle of Voluntary Un-paid Blood Donation. It is governed by the GOP National Blood Policy, Strategic Framework and Guidelines and implemented through eight blood banks located in different parts of the country.

The Blood Transfusion Service has three components:

  1. Donor Recruitment Section
  2. Blood Bank & Laboratory
  3. Administration

Capacity assessment visits to all PRC Blood Donor Centres by teams from the German Red Cross (GRC), GTZ, KFW and WHO EMRO Delegate have been conducted and reported. The Blood Donor Centre at the National Headquarters (NHQ) has been remodelled and equipped with the support of German Red Cross.
