Today is World Blood Donor Day, an important campaign for Cenexi through our business.
What is World Blood Donor Day?
Designated as an event since 2005 by the World Health Assembly, it promotes the importance of giving blood and raises awareness of the need for blood donors.
To date, there are no treatments or synthetic drugs that can replace human blood. As such, a donation can save up to three lives. In France alone, ten thousand donations of blood are needed every day to treat a million people every year.
The blood collected is used in three different ways:
- for emergency situations, i.e. bleeding;
- for chronic needs, such as blood diseases and cancer;
- for the manufacture of certain medicinal products.
