Why is it important?

We define which part of the blood demanding reasons is mostly consuming more, and this study plays a role in organising a different approach for blood donation, and also in management of blood products among the developing countries.


I hope this article makes what people might think is a boring, slightly abstract area like blood product statistics. But blood donation is a life saving mechanism especially in this pandemic. I hope we enlighten the inadequacy of blood donations in Eritrea and also this goes around in most developing countries specially sub-saharan African countries.
