Launch of blood donation project in Turkey

Health Focus is a partner in a consortium with WYG Türkiye and GIZ International Services implementing an EU funded Technical Assistance project for the “Recruitment of Future Blood Donors” in Turkey. The kick-off meeting with the three beneficiaries; the Turkish Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education and the Turkish Red Crescent Organization took place on the 26th of February 2014 in Ankara. A planning workshop is scheduled for the last week of March. The project aims to motivate Turkish citizens, especially young people, to donate blood regularly. This will ensure the regular and safe provision of blood and blood products for all related health care needs of the general population, which is increasingly important in Turkey’s modern health system.
