World Blood Donor Day 2019


Safe Blood for all

This World Blood Donor Day WHO is calling for safe blood for all. The moment you donate blood, you are helping to provide safe blood for all, MAKE A DATE TO GIVE. Donate blood. Save lives.


This year, World Blood Donor Day will once again be celebrated around the world on 14 June. The event serves to thank voluntary, unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood and also to raise awareness of the need for regular blood donations to ensure that all individuals and communities have access to affordable and timely supplies of safe and quality-assured blood and blood products, as an integral part of universal health coverage and a key component of effective health systems.
