CITE SUPPORTS BLOOD DONATION
CITE supports the Department of Health’s intensified advocacy on voluntary blood donation to provide safe blood supply thus sustaining its adequacy and accessibility. Strengthened by the Republic Act 7719, also known as the National Blood Services Act of 1994, millions of lives are saved despite DOH’s continuing challenge to recruit voluntary blood donors.
This year, CITE drew 45 blood donors from different year levels in a bloodletting activity held February 22, 2019. About 450 milliliters were extracted from the donors. DOH has set the goal to collect 1 million blood units annually to meet the demands for blood transfusion among patients. Nurse Franklin Fernandez gave the orientation on blood donation on February 21.
