National Hemocenter gets approval, board appointed

Local Culture

The plenary session of the  National Assembly approved yesterday in the second debate the project of law 581 , that regulates the services of blood and blood transfusions.

The proposal, presented in October last year by the head of the Ministry of Health (Minsa), Miguel Mayo, seeks to create a National Hemocenter to take charge of centralizing everything related to blood banks.

Article 14 of said legislative initiative indicates that the National Hemocenter will be a single entity attached to the Ministry of Health , responsible for the processing and distribution of blood components throughout the national territory, as well as the recruitment of donors.

Likewise, the bill establishes that Law 17 of July 31, 1986, which regulates blood banks, will be repealed.

Arinda Alemán, coordinator of the blood program of the Minsa, who was present in the plenary of the Assembly during the debate of the project, said that this is positive, since the aforementioned law dates from 32 years ago and an update is required to do more effective and quality blood supply service.
