Review of Blood Donation and Challenges in Nigeria

Blood and blood components are required every day to save thousands of lives in our hospitals. At the moment, with Nigeria’s level of health care delivery, it is estimated that about 1.5 million units of blood are required generally per annum.

According to study, Nigeria is still highly reliant on family replacement and paid donors. Only about 5 percent of donations in Nigeria are from voluntary donors.



Nigeria is still hit by shortage of voluntary blood donors. The WHO notes that if a minimum of 1 percent of a country’s population donates 1 percent  blood, the country can meet it’s basic requirement in blood. But Nigeria is not able to meet this minimum requirement. This is largely because 60 percent of all blood donations are from commercial donors and 30 percent from family replacement.

A national baseline data survey on blood transfusion indicated that, in the public sector, donor population was made up of 25 percent commercial donors and 75 percent of replacement donors while voluntary unpaid donors were negligible.
