Just under 10% of all blood donations go to help babies, pregnant women and children.
Malaria and Tropical Arboviruses infections (which include Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika), are mosquito-borne infections which may be transmitted by blood transfusion.
When can I donate?
Most people who travel outside New Zealand are still able to donate blood when they return. However, travel to an area where there is a risk of exposure to certain diseases can result in symptomless infection(s) that can be transmitted through blood transfusion.
