Abstract

We discuss the basic indices related to blood donation and treatment in Europe with reference to Polish statistics and for some data reference is also made to world statistics. Attention was drawn to ongoing changes and tendencies with special focus on phenomena that negatively affect blood supply and treatment based on blood and blood components. Compensative solutions and measures were presented with special emphasis on rationalization and optimization of blood-based treatment, the patients’ own blood included. Implementation status of blood safety- -strengthening initiatives is presented, i.e. implementation of pathogen reduction methods in blood components as well as organizational modifications (eg. changes in the donor-candidate qualification procedure). Principles of the blood-self sufficiency program are presented against the background of the recent WHO resolutions, also in relation to Poland.
