The Blood Care Foundation
The Blood Care Foundation
The Blood Care Foundation is a charitable, not for profit organisation, registered in the United Kingdom. The Foundation operates a Blood Care Programme, which is designed to provide screened blood, in an emergency, to its members in any part of the world.

The Programme is designed to alleviate the shortages of blood, which occur in many parts of the developing world. These shortages have numerous causes. Amongst the most important are cultural taboos, financial constraints and a high incidence of transfusion transmitted diseases in the donor pool. Examples of such diseases are HIV I and II, hepatitis B and C and malaria. The provision of blood cover by the Foundation, particularly to expatriate communities, business travellers and their spouses and to holiday-makers, ensures that the local supplies of blood are available to the inhabitants of that particular country.
