Pakistan’s annual blood requirement is approximately 1.5 million bags, with 40% of the demand being met by the public sector. About 80% of private sector blood transfusion takes place in the major cities, including Karachi and Lahore.
Blood transfusion services in Pakistan are mostly hospital-based. There are nearly 170 public and about 450 private blood banks in the country. Pakistan is among those low-income bracket countries which suffers immensely from lack of blood donors, as just 28 of 10,000 of people donate their blood.
Pakistan also has a high burden of Thalassaemia. According to WHO estimates, 5000 children are born with Thalassaemia each year and 70,000 patients are registered with the disease. Most services for these patients are provided by private blood transfusion services run by non-governmental organizations.
