World Blood Donor Day 2020

06/14/2020

Today it is World Blood Donor Day 2020. A day that serves to thank voluntary, unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood and also to raise awareness of the need for regular blood donations to ensure that all individuals and communities have access to affordable and timely supplies of safe and quality-assured blood and blood products, as an integral part of universal health coverage and a key component of effective health systems.

Your involvement and support will help to ensure greater impact for World Blood Donor Day 2020, increasing recognition worldwide that giving blood is a life-saving act of solidarity and that services providing safe blood and blood products are an essential element of every health care system. 

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, WHO will run a global virtual campaign this year. We urge you to join us to make access to safe blood a reality for everyone.
