World Blood Donor Day

Celebrated annually on June 14, World Blood Donor Day (WBDD) was first organized in 2004 by four key international organizations: the World Health Organization, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the International Federation of Blood Donor Organizations (IFBDO), and the International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT). The primary objectives are to raise awareness about the crucial need for safe blood and blood products and to express gratitude to voluntary blood donors for their life-saving contributions. Recognized as one of the 11 official global public health campaigns by the World Health Organization (WHO), World Blood Donor Day stands alongside events such as World Health Day, World Chagas Disease Day, World Tuberculosis Day, World Immunization Week, World Patient Safety Day, World Malaria Day, World No Tobacco Day, World Hepatitis Day, World Antimicrobial Awareness Week, and World AIDS Day.
