Challenges with Voluntary Platelet Apheresis

When Sankalp got it's first request for platelet apheresis, little was known and understood about the procedure. We got the volunteers to donate platelets first and then gradually made progress towards educating the regular blood donors as well as building the country's first voluntary platelet database.

Replacement Donor Card - A Certificate of Shame

NACO claims 80% voluntary blood donation already and aims at achieving 85% in 2014-15. Unfortunately, right under the government's nose, at an institution which government wants the nation to look up-to and learn from - the message of voluntary blood donations seems to have no takers.

Ethical and legal considerations in blood donor counselling

While voluntary blood donation camps are improving in terms of their adherence to national and global standards are concerned, a major area which continues to remain neglected is that of donor counselling. Most blood banks do not have a trained counsellor to attend the drives and even those who take up the responsibility lack the necessary focus and skill. We share in this article the ethical and legal considerations in blood donor counseling as indicated in the Implementation Guidelines for Blood donor Counselling by World Health Organisation.

Thal Meet-Up

The news of a child being born with thalassemia devastates the family. More grueling is the struggle to find the way ahead for disease management. Each family was forced to wage their own battle and find their way through. The situation is most difficult for the poor and the illiterate parents. 

On World Thalassemia Day

Sankalp India Foundation has been involved with Thalassemia management for 3 years now but walking into the thalassemia day care is not an easy thing for me. I love to interact with the children and the  families, try to reassure them, help them with their doubts, listed to them, and see their smiles.
Lets get together to map the prevalence of thalassemia in Karnataka

Sankalp India Foundation(S.I.F.) has been working for voluntary blood donation since 2003. Since 2011 S.I.F. has also taken up the cause of thalassemia management and cure.

Online Blood Donor Databases - Philanthropy or Business

Internet and social media is touching all areas of life. How could blood banking remain untouched. Numerous blood donor registries have mushroomed with claims to provide easy access to blood donors at the time of need. Fancy solutions making intelligent use of social media and vicinity based search have been in the news.
