Red Cross and Red Crescent Blood Donor Recruitment Resources 

To maintain a safe and sufficient blood supply it is important to communicate with the community, existing donors and other stakeholders. GAP has produced some materials* and resources that can be customised for National Society blood programs (ie. branded with RC/RC logos, translated, edited etc). We can also email design files on request.

Donors who are temporarily postponed from blood donation are more likely to return to donate if they understand why.
