    Introduction: An ample and authentic supply of safe blood can be assertive by a stable base of voluntary or unpaid blood donors. These donors are also the safest group of donors as the prevalence of blood-borne infections is lowest among this group. There is a difference in the level of admittance to blood between low- and high-income countries. The whole blood donation rate is an indicator for the general availability of blood in a country. Background: Providing safe and ample blood should be a fundamental part of every country’s national healthcare policy. The age profile of blood donors shows that, proportionally, more young people donate blood in low- and middle-income countries than in high-income countries. Demographic information of blood donors is important for formulating and monitoring recruitment strategies. The capacity to provide patients with the different blood components they require is still limited in low income countries: 50% of the blood collected in low-income countries is separated into components, 59% in lower-middle-income countries, 92% in upper- middle-income countries, and 97% in high-income countries. In high-income countries, transfusion is most commonly used for concerned care in cardiovascular and transplant surgery, massive trauma, and therapy for hematological studies.
