China Issues New Blood Donation Regulation

China's Ministry of Health on Monday publicized a regulation on blood donation to ensure better management of local blood stations and the physical health of donors.


The regulation established detailed rules on lab testing, blood plasma storage and transportation and on the quick reporting of any adverse reactions.


It stresses that donation points should actively encourage people in the community to donate blood.


Donors must provide their ID cards and photographs, as well as undergo physical checkups and blood tests before giving blood. Each will receive a unique donation serial number and donor records will must be kept for ten years.


The regulation applies to all local blood plasma collection stations which should ensure they meet the criteria by June 30, 2007, according to the ministry.
