Awareness Programs

Blood is a life-saving drug and a scarce resource.  It cannot by manufactured in laboratories as other medicines.  The onus of sharing this resource is among the residents of the society itself.  Shortage of blood components is a harsh reality in the hills Uttarakhand.  Patients of the remote areas are referred to higher centers in Dehradun due to non-availability of Blood and mortality during transit is not uncommon. 

The IMA Blood Bank initiated a project to share information regarding NRVBD across the State of Uttarakhand.  The Navajbai Ratan Tata Trust (NRTT) munificently supported the project and various awareness activities were conducted over a period of three years.

The objective of the school education and development program was to sensitize the school children in the age groups of 13 to 17 regarding the perennial shortage of blood, importance of NRVBD and how Blood Donation can save lives.
