Blood donation: an act of solidarity – World Blood Donor Day 2022

World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “Blood donation: an act of solidarity – World Blood Donor Day 2022” – below is their description.

Safe blood and blood products and their transfusion are a critical aspect of health care. They are key in treating people suffering from a range of diseases and as a result of accidents, natural disasters and armed conflict. The need for blood is universal, but access to it is limited – especially in low- and middle -income countries, where shortages particularly impact women and children as these tend to be the people who need blood most.

Becoming a regular voluntary blood donor is a simple but selfless step that everyone can take to strengthen their communities, support local health systems and save lives.

This video was created for World Blood Donor Day 2022, and calls for people all around the globe to give blood in a gesture of solidarity.
