The FDA's Current Guidance on Blood Donations for Gay and Bi-Sexual men is discriminatory and arbitrary leaving countless healthy donors unable to do so.
It needs to reviewed and updated to reflect current science and HIV testing capabilities to determine one individual donor's risk to the donor pool.
Blood is Blood http://bloodisblood.us in Buffalo, NY has been pushing for change since 2015 and has only seen one stride from the FDA to update their policy - with replacing an indefinite deferral to a 12-month deferral.
I am proposing that we update the policy to one in which we determine eligibility based on an individual donors risk, not one whole group.
Via Sexual History & Testing Records. Etc....
