Union Minister for Health Dr Thet Khaing Win stated that during the 45th ceremony to honour blood donors, the 90,000 units of blood donated at the National Blood Centre Myanmar were distributed to the hospitals.
The ceremony took place on 20 January, and the Union minister mentioned that a total of 93,385 units of blood were collected in 2023. Patients could receive treatments without worrying about finding blood donors, and the process did not incur significant expenses. When a patient requires a blood transfusion to recover from an illness, it is the only viable solution, added the minister, underscoring the crucial role of blood donors.
In the country, seven blood banks are attached to public hospitals in Nay Pyi Taw, Mandalay, Magway, Mawlamyine, Myitkyina, Taunggyi, and Pathein, including the National Blood Centre Myanmar. Furthermore, the blood banks associated with laboratories in hospitals with 200-and 100-bed have been expanded. The Blood Management System (BMS) software is also installed and utilized. — TWA/ TRKM
