To your health: A pint in time saves lives
World Blood Donor Day has been held annually since 2004 on June 14. It was launched in Johannesburg, South Africa, following the success of World Health Day 2000, which was devoted to the theme “Blood Saves Lives. Safe Blood Starts With Me”. The enthusiasm and energy with which this day was marked was a powerful and positive response to the opportunity to thank the millions of people who give the precious gift of life through their donation of blood every year.
