The ISBT Working Party on Global Blood Safety initiated the ICSPP as a global coalition to advance access to safe plasma proteins in Low- and Middle- Income Countries.

In cooperation with the World Health Organisation, the coalition will facilitate in-country projects on stepwise enhancement of the quality, safety and volume of domestic plasma; local small-scale preparation of virus-safe clotting factors and immunoglobulins; and progress toward industrial plasma fractionation.

Founding members of ICSPP include:

  • ISBT
  • International Federation of Blood Donor Organizations
  • International Patient Organisation for Primary Immunodeficiencies
  • World Federation of Hemophilia
  • International Plasma and Fractionation Association
  • Plasma Protein Therapeutics Association
