There are more than 700 blood banks across the 31 provinces in the country, said Ali Akbar Pourfathollah, head of Iran Blood Transfusion Organization. “There are no concerns regarding blood storage, but areas that need attention are those related to the process of transfusion such as compatibility tests, storage standards and quality, as well as testing the collected blood,” he said, reported. Over two million blood units are donated to the IBTO every year. With proper qualitative and quantitative storage, the country plans to fulfill the World Health Organization’s slogan of “safe and sufficient blood supply.”
