Anti-D-donorship: motivators and barriers
What is it about?
Anti-D-immunoglobuline (anti-D-Ig) is used to prevent development of RhD-antibodies during pregnancy and delivery. Anti-D-Ig is produced from the plasma of women who developed RhD-antibodies during pregnancy and delivery. Thanks to the prevention programme, the number of potential anti-D donors is decreasing. Therefore, it is important to recrute a substantial part of the women with RhD-antibodies. We studied the motivations and barriers of RhD-immunised women to become anti-D donor.
Why is it important?
Knowledge about motivations and barriers to become anti-D donor is necessary for bloodbanks to develop a targeted strategy to recruite potential anti-D donors.
