The goal is to raise global awareness of the need for healthy blood and blood products for transfusion, as well as the vital role that unpaid, volunteer blood donors play in national health systems. The day also serves as a call to action for governments and national health authorities to allocate sufficient resources and implement mechanisms and infrastructures to promote blood collection from unpaid, voluntary donors.

Safe blood and blood products, as well as their transfusion, are essential components of patient treatment and public health. Every day, they save millions of lives while also improving the health and quality of life of many people. Although there is a universal need for blood, not everyone has access to it. In underdeveloped countries, blood shortages are particularly severe.

All governments require regular, unpaid blood donors to ensure that everyone who requires safe blood has access to it. Despite limited mobility and other limitations, blood donors in many nations continued to donate blood and plasma to patients who needed transfusions during the COVID-19 pandemic. This amazing effort in the midst of an unusual catastrophe emphasises the critical importance of well-organized, dedicated voluntary, non-remunerated blood donors in guaranteeing a safe and sufficient blood supply in both normal and emergency situations.
