Governance: Donor Care

The WMDA has established a board committee to oversee the donor care activities of the association. The Board Committee Donor Care provides advice on donor care, education and science, and is assisted by:

  • The Working Group Medical aims to be an international resource for donor centres, collection centres, donor registries and transplant centres on all medical and ethical issues pertaining to blood cell donation, donor safety, donor outcome and the impact of donor factors on patient outcome.
  • The S(P)EAR Committee analyses information on donor and recipient Serious Adverse Events and Serious Adverse Reactions.
  • The Donor Medical Suitability Committee is responsible for recommendations concerning criteria to qualify unrelated stem cell donors.
