You wish to give your blood?
Mission of the Blood Transfusion Center (BTC)
Every year, the HUG Blood Transfusion Center (BTC) receives around 18,000 units of blood. These come from a large network of around 11,000 regular donors.
Unfortunately, these donations are not enough to meet all blood needs. Every year, over 22,000 units of blood are used by hospitals in the Geneva canton, for patients who have had an accident or undergoing surgery. To meet these needs and to replace people who no longer donate, the BTC needs to recruit 3,000 new donors each year.
