Unsafe blood accounts for 15% of Nigeria?s HIV/AIDS transmission
« on: February 07, 2008, 11:24:09 PM »
The National Agency for the Control of Aids has said that poorly screened blood donated to hospitals accounted for about 15 per cent of HIV/AIDS transmission in the country.

It said only 20 per cent of blood got from hospitals were properly screened, which called for all stakeholders to intensify efforts at getting hospitals to get blood only from the National Blood Transfusion Service.

It also said that some Nigerians were profiteering in the sale of blood to hospitals rather than willingly donating blood.
