About and Activities

Learn more about the Haemovigilance Working Party and its activities.


The WP focuses on both recipients and donors. We develop definitions and tools and share and compare data. We regularly discuss updates on international activities and work on definitions and tools. We collaborate with HV organisations across the world.

Our Chairperson is Mary Townsend.


The Paediatric Subgroup is chaired by Ruchika Goel. The subgroup is a shared group between the Clinical Transfusion and the Haemovigilance Working Parties.


Paediatrics Subgroup

Our aim is to promote best practice, safe transfusion and blood conservation for neonates and children, through advocacy, educational resources and international collaboration.


We meet at the ISBT congresses and develop HV definitions and tools. We also participate in international projects and have regular discussions with other Working Parties.
