Introduce a blood donation policy based on individual risk, not sexuality

0 have signed. Let’s get to 75,000!


Our goal is simple: that all those who want to donate blood and could do so safely should be able to. 

 

We helped introduce a world-leading blood donation policy for gay and bi men in 2017, reducing the deferral period from 12 months down to three, but we want to go further. We believe an individualised, risk-based approach to assess sexual behaviour, rather than broad groups such as sexual preference is the best way to ensure all those who want to donate and could do so safely can.

 

We are currently working with the Department for Health and the NHS Blood and Transplant services to work towards this goal but we need your help! Please sign and share the petition, we can't do this without your support!
