Reading time 1 min read
The International Federation of Blood Donors held its seventh Congress in Monaco in October 1971, and the report of its work has now been published. This reproduces various technical communications on, inter alia, “The Importance of Blood Donation for Organ Transplants” and current blood transfusion problems. It contains also a report by the Belgian Red Cross Society's constantly developing blood donor service, for the number of donors has unceasingly increased from 131,000 in 1969 to 147,000 in 1971.
