Voluntary blood donation camp held

Port Blair
14 Jul 2017

A voluntary blood donation camp was organized in the Conference Hall of Directorate of Industries, Port Blair today which was facilitated by A&N AIDS Control Society. 20 units of blood were collected from the volunteers. Supervising the camp, Dr. Ganesh Samadder, Deputy Director (Blood Safety), A&N AIDS Control Society motivated the gathering to donate blood voluntarily. He encouraged young people to become new donors. Increasing blood safety is mandated by the emergence of HIV positive and other transmissible diseases which need to be screened.  The medical/laboratory staff of ANACS and Blood Bank, GB Pant Hospital conducted the camp.
