Blood Collections & Transfusion A Global Perspective 2014

 

This study provides a global perspective on the blood collection, processing and transfusion systems in 46 countries from the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Middle East, and Africa. The reports on 30 of the countries are based on in-depth interviews with blood officials in each of those countries to better help understand trends, how the blood system fits within its healthcare system and what’s new and different.

This is the latest expansion and update of the popular Blood Collection and Transfusion in Europe series, which the Marketing Research Bureau has published every three years since the 1980’s.  The senior editor of this newest version is Jim MacPherson, an influential force in North American and global transfusion medicine for over 40 years.
