5 new blood banks joined Disha

3 of the best Blood Banks from Uttara Kannada are now networked to the centralized blood helpline. Pandit Govt Hospital IMA Blood Bank (Sirsi), Shripad Hagde Kadave Blood Bank (Sirsi) and Uttara Kannada Rotary Blood Bank (Kumta) are now a part of Disha. Helpline stickers and posters have also been given to other blood banks of the area. With Uttara Kannada being a part of the western ghat which is prone to accidents, integrating blood banks from the area and ensuring blood safety to patients there is a giant leap for Sankalp.

Apart from these 3 Blood Banks, Mahaveer Blood Bank (Belgaum) and Rashtrotthana Blood Bank (Hubli) are also a part of the network now. Disha is now networked to 64 blood banks of the state which follow the standard practices in blood banking. Now when a patient calls to the helpline for blood, they will able to reach out further to these blood banks as well, thereby making the helpline more robust.

Sankalp extends its warm welcome to these blood banks for being instrumental in taking voluntary blood banking and blood transparency to newer heights in Karnataka.
