The Blood Care Foundation

The Blood Care Foundation is a charitable, not for profit organisation, registered in the United Kingdom in 1991. The Foundation operates a Blood Care Programme, which is designed to provide screened blood, in an emergency, to its members in any part of the world.

The Programme is designed to alleviate the shortages of blood, which occur in many parts of the developing world. These shortages have numerous causes. Amongst the most important are cultural taboos, financial constraints and a high incidence of transfusion transmitted diseases in the donor pool. Examples of such diseases are HIV I and II, hepatitis B and C, Chagas disease and malaria.

The provision of blood cover by the Foundation, particularly to expatriate communities, business travellers and their spouses and to holiday-makers, ensures that the local supplies of blood remain available to the inhabitants of that particular country.
