Caribbean Regional Standards for Blood Banks and Transfusion Services. Second Edition, 2012
(2012; 154 pages)

Abstract

The Second Edition of the Caribbean Standards is the end result of a consultation process. It includes five annexes that intend to provide both technical and policy guidance to national health authorities and to technical staff in the blood banks and transfusion services. These Standards have the purpose of providing minimal management and operational criteria for blood transfusion safety in the Caribbean Region.

It is expected that the Ministries of Health of the Caribbean countries officially adopt the new version of the Caribbean Regional Standards for Blood Banks and Transfusion Services, and that the Executive Management of each of the centers provides the necessary resources for their implementation.

These Standards are applicable to Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, British Territories (Anguilla, Cayman Islands, Montserrat, and British Virgin Islands), Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Netherland Antilles (Curacao, Aruba), St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.
