In Vietnam, since the Government’s approval of the national program for encouraging voluntary blood donation in 2000, blood donation has been steadily increased. However, the current blood donation level only meets 45% of demand. For example, in the week after Tet this year, only 70 out of 970 hospitals in Vietnam can receive blood for treatments.
The AmCham CSR Group cooperates every year with the Hospital of Hematology and Blood Transfusion and Ho Chi Minh City Humanitarian Blood Donation Center of Red Cross Ho Chi Minh City to organize an AmCham World Blood Donor Day from 7:30am to 11:00am.
