World Blood Donor Day – 14th June 2021

Every year countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day on  14 th  June . The aim of the day is to raise global awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products for transfusion and of the critical contribution voluntary, unpaid blood donors make to national health systems. Such campaigns also provide the opportunity to call to action to governments and national health authorities to provide adequate resources and put into place systems and infrastructures to increase the collection of blood from voluntary, non-remunerated blood donors. 2021’s campaign slogan is “Give blood and keep the world beating”.

It reinforces the global call for more people all over the world to donate blood regularly and contribute to better health.
