This book summarizes the rationale for the parameters and conditions that should be taken into consideration in the education and selection of blood donors, in order to allow blood service staff, community volunteers and prospective blood donors to understand them.

In addition, it includes recommendations made by PAHO to the national health authorities and the national blood programs for promoting multidisciplinary and coordinated approaches for health promotion, public education, universal and regional human and patient rights-as applicable to blood donors and recipients-, quality assurance and financial efficiency in the issues pertaining to sufficiency, availability, access, quality, safety, and timeliness of blood for transfusion.
