Blood for BME

Increasing the number of BAME Blood Donors3

Only 0.2 percent of the blood donation population are BME. This is an issue because diseases such sickle cell anemia and thalassemia are traditionally african/ BME diseases. In order to have the lowest chance of rejection, other genetic and environmental factors come into play, and sourcing blood from someone of the same background will decrease the chance of rejection.
