On Wednesday 30th June, the University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) hosted its first blood donation day on Butaro Campus in partnership with the Rwanda Biomedical Center (RBC). All UGHE staff, students and faculty eligible to give blood were invited to participate, with trained medical professionals and blood taking equipment provided by RBC.
The event aligns with the UN commemoration of World Blood Donor Day which took place this month, as well as the university’s focus on equitable health services delivery. It comes as an actionable measure to mitigate blood donation hesitancy, and leverage self-sufficiency of blood byproducts in Rwanda.
