India’s blood requirement is about 6 million units per year. Blood Banks are able to collect only about 3 million units per year. Patients actually die because the right kind of blood does not reach them in time. The heavy shortfall in supply encourages racketeering in blood and blood products. It also encourages blood donation for money, encouraging “ professional” donorship. Professional donors come from weaker sections of the society and are rarely in ideal health for blood donation and do it only for commercial reasons. The risk of infection is also high in blood collected from professional donors.
It is believed that if 2% of India’s population donates blood once a year, the blood requirement of the country can be easily met. Webhealthcentre.com has created the Bloodline service as a forum to encourage voluntary blood donation. This service also hopes to encourage direct interaction between patients, donors and blood banks.
We invite Donors, Patients and Blood banks to make use of this space to acquire more information about each other and also to make use of the services provided specially for each group.
