FG to harmonise national blood database

The Federal Government has started moves to establish a unified national blood database.

The harmonisation of the national blood database is aimed at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of blood banking services in Nigeria, ensuring a safer and more reliable supply of blood for patients in need.

This was disclosed in a press statement by the National Blood Service Commission on Thursday.

The statement noted that the move was announced by the Director General of the commission, Saleh Yuguda, during a collaborative meeting with a team from the African Medical Centre for Excellence in Abuja.

The ACME’s team, led by Brian Deaver, is seeking to collaborate with the commission to identify areas for beneficial partnership.

Meanwhile, Yuguda emphasised the need for research programs that targeted blood service and hematology and pledged a robust commitment to the AMCE.

“This development is a significant step forward for Nigeria’s healthcare system and highlights the government’s commitment to improving the quality of care for its citizens.

“The collaboration between the NBSC and the AMCE is expected to yield fruitful results, driving progress in the fields of blood service and haematology,” the statement added.
