World Blood Donor Day

June 14 is World Blood Donor Day - The best way to celebrate #worldblooddonorday is by saving lives and donating blood today.

  • 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.

  • Becoming a regular voluntary blood donor is a simple but selfless step that everyone can take to strengthen their communities, support local health systems and save lives.

"Donating blood is an act of solidarity. Join the effort and save lives"
