Description

The absence of an adequate, effective, safe-free of charge National Blood Transfusion Services is an important health-system problem that Pakistan faces today. The requirement of blood transfusion for potentially preventable maternal morbidity and mortality is quite high in Pakistan. Creation of Blood-intensive specialist Centres for Cancer Surgery, Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy, Renal Dialysis, Renal transplantation, Cardiovascular by-pass surgery, Thalassaemia, Haemophilia, Leukaemia etc, have all led to an even greater need for blood and blood products.

It is estimated that, Pakistan requires around 8,000+ units of blood everyday, while the transfusion needs outstrip the current availability of blood. The collection and supply of safe blood is further reduced with the fairly high prevalence rate of Hepatitis B & C viruses found amongst the potential blood donors. Although systematic surveys have not been carried out in all areas of the country, it is estimated that around ten million suffer from the viruses of Hepatitis B and C. The danger of spreading HIV infections, even in low-incidence country like Pakistan further complicates the situation.
