Materials and Methods: Records from the blood bank attached to a tertiary care center were analysed. Past of 3 years records were entered and analysed through epi info 7.
Results: In present study, the prevalence of blood-borne infection among blood donors was 2.12%. HIV incidence was 0.52% and HBV, HCV and Syphilis 0.68%. 0.11%, respectively, and 0.81%. Replacement donor has a rate of 11.41% relative to voluntary donor of 0.70%.
Conclusion: Blood door selection procedure must be comprehensive, utilising traditional procedures. Blood preservation is the recipient’s primary concern. Furthermore, community motivation and knowledge campaigns are needed to raise volunteer blood donors.
