A Message from the Director

11 January 2018


Blood Donations are usually on a downward trend during January to April every year. It is also observed when there is an election. During and post-election period, general public’s blood donation is not up to the expected levels.

Therefore in order to prevent this short coming, NBTS takes necessary measures to inform general public to donate blood and Civil Organizers to step up campaign to donate blood.

This is only to prevent future shortage of blood and not to address a current crisis.

Dr. Rukshan Bellana
National Blood Transfusion Service.
