Blood Transfusion Services in Sub Saharan Africa: Challenges and Constraints
This book reiterates the need for all stake holders involved in transfusion service delivery in Africa; from patients to the transfusion scientist, requesting clinicians, blood collection staff and distribution staff to work collaboratively to demonstrate judicious, world-class stewardship and use of the precious gifts of human blood as well as help people understand the limitations of blood supply. It is designed to emphasize the evidenced based best practices in transfusion medicine in the developed world to enable countries in Africa optimise their transfusion service delivery to their patients.
