World Blood Donor Day 2017
Don't wait until disaster strikes
What can you do?
Give blood, give now, give often
June 14 is a day where we acknowledge and thank the anonymous voluntary unpaid heroes who donate their blood so that people who are in danger can survive. It is also a day to create awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products all over the world.
The theme of this year’s campaign is blood donation in emergencies. In crisis or emergency situation, the natural human response is "What can I do? How can I help?". Therefore, the slogan for the 2017 campaign is: What can you do?, with the secondary message: Give blood. Give now. Give often.
The host country for the global event of World Blood Donor Day 2017 is Vietnam through its National Institute of Haematology and Blood Transfusion (NIHBT). The Global event will be held in Hanoi.
