Open letter from the World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA) to condemn the war in Ukraine and to ensure that health services can continue to provide care to all patients in need of a transplant.



Our community believes in collaboration, integration and democracy. Through acts of aggression by Russian military forces, we see these values being threatened and eroded. WMDA calls on all stakeholders to strongly condemn the violence, bombing, killings, and disruption to essential services resulting from this conflict.

WMDA asks that all parties respect international humanitarian law by ensuring swift and safe delivery of cellular products to all patients who need a transplant and to ensure access to care and medicinal products for patients needing complex transplant treatments, such as those with blood cancer.

We stand for our colleagues, friends, families, donors and patients impacted by this tragedy and we continue to support our members during this difficult time.
