National Malaria Response Plan and Rotarian Malaria Partners Uganda blood donation campaign against Malaria
National Malaria Response Plan and Rotarian Malaria Partners Uganda, have joined the National Malaria Control Programme(NMCP) of the Ministry of Health and the Uganda Blood Transfusion Services (UBTS) to conduct a nation wide blood donation campaign.
This has started with a blood donation drive at the Ministry of Health Gardens on the 27 August, 2019 starting at 10:00AM-05:00PM.
The urgent need of blood stems from the surge in malaria cases due to the recent prevailing rains that have ravaged the country this year. Malaria is one of ther leading causes of the increasing cases of anaemiain the country which can result into death especially young children and pregnant women
50,000 units of blood is what the campaign is seeking to collect country wide in an effort to combat this problem. Hence the Ministy of Health, Rotarian Malaria Partners Uganda and UBTS call upon the public to join this campaign to raise these units of blood to fight anaemia resulting from malaria.
The campaign was officially launched by the Honourable Minister of State for Health for Primary Healrh Care (Dr. Joyce Moriku), at the Ministry of Health headquarters. We are to conduct the blood drives in Government Angencies, Corporate Companies, public areas, Universities and Tertiary institutions in our drive to collect blood during the campaign.
We call upon the all adults above 16 to 45 years of age to give blood for this cause.
