Malawi Blood Safety Report 2010

Passively reported data from hospital laboratories on blood transfusion services was incomplete for 2010. Therefore, a comprehensive survey of all hospital laboratories was included in the integrated ART and TB Programme supervision conducted in January and February 201. The survey was limited to data on blood collected from family/replacement donors. The majority of blood products are now provided to health facilities by the Malawi Blood Transfusion Service (MBTS) from voluntary non-remunerated donors. Blood units supplied by MBTS were not directly included in the survey and are reported separately.
