More Blood Donation Needed

Ministry of Health and youth leader have once again encouraged the public to donate their blood to meet its demand at Cambodia's hospitals and health clinics.

On behalf of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Hok Kim Cheng, Director of the National Blood Transfusion Center (NBTC) made the appeal during the recent International Blood Donation Day.

H.E. Hun Many, lawmaker and President of Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia echoed the call stressing that Cambodia needs about 200 bags of blood every day and that the donation does not affect health.

Figure in 2016 showed that blood donation was only around 30 percent of the demand for it.
