ISBT webinar by Brian Custer

The landscape for donor eligibility polices is quickly changing. Blood donation by men who have sex with men (MSM) remains a controversial topic. Significant policy change has occurred in the last 10 years with many countries adopting shorter time-limited deferrals for MSM. This webinar will provide a comparative update on current donor eligibility policies for MSM, and an overview of the donation/collection procedures in use in different countries. Research projects that are intended to inform policy also will be discussed.

This webinar will be presented by Brian Custer. Brian is the Director of Epidemiology and Health Policy Science and a Vice President of Research and Scientific Programs at Vitalant Research Institute in San Francisco, and he also works at the Department of Laboratory Medicine at the University of California San Francisco as Professor.
