Event description
Round-table discussion on the importance of blood donation, in the context of the evaluation of the EU Blood Directives

About this Event

The European Blood Alliance is organizing, together with MEP Françoise Grossetête (EPP, France) an EU policy event on blood donation, in the context of the evaluation of the Directive 2002/98/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 January 2003 setting standards of quality and safety for the collection, testing, processing, storage and distribution of human blood and blood components and amending Directive 2001/83/EC, here shorten to “EU Blood Directive”.

The event will serve as a platform to discuss the issues in relation with the EU Blood Directive and its potential revision, for enhanced EU action on blood components safety, quality, and donorship, starting the advocacy on a potential new Directive, in preparation of the changing EU political leadership in 2019 (elections of new European Parliament, and new European Commission entering into office). It would ultimately be an occasion to discuss further the EU Blood Directive with MEPs and stakeholders.

The event is addressed to MEPs, European Commission representatives working in the field of health and key stakeholders, to inspire EU action. MEPs will be encouraged to prepare a position on a revision of the Directive. The event could also serve to initiate an informal coalition of organisations sharing the same views on the revision of the Blood Directive.

The full programme is available on www.europeanbloodalliance.eu.
