Global Mapping

Accurate information on all National Society blood services is critical for GAP and the IFRC to plan for future support activities and to conduct the Self-assessment program at a regional and global level.

Global mapping provides visibility of the engagement of National Societies in the provision of blood programs, and the role of the National Society and blood service in each country.

National Societies may be involved in a blood program at 3 levels (or they may have no involvement):

The comprehensive information gained through global mapping provides a valuable reference tool, particularly in disaster response, to enable rapid assessment of the potential impact of the disaster on a National Society blood program and any support that may be required by GAP and the IFRC.

From 2015 - 2018, GAP completed a global mapping exercise to determine the level of involvement of all Red Cross / Red Crescent National Societies in the blood programs of their respective countries.
