World Blood Donor Day is observed on June 14 every year to raise awareness about the need to donate blood regularly to increase the availability of safe blood and its products for patients in need.

According to WHO, this day is aimed 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.

World Blood Donor Day also provides a time to call to action 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.

World Blood Donor Day’s slogan for the year 2021 is “Give blood and keep the world-beating”, highlighting the essential contribution blood donors make to keeping the world pulsating by saving lives and improving others’ health.

Italy will host World Blood Donor Day 2021 through its National Blood Centre. The global event will be held in Rome on 14 June 2021.
