LIV calls for reduction in the blood donation deferral period

LIV calls for reduction in the blood donation deferral period

By Health Law Committee

Discrimination Health 


The LIV has written to the Victorian government requesting its support for a reduction in the current sexual activity deferral period for blood donations from 12 months to three months.

This reduction would align with recent recommendations by the Australian Red Cross and the Therapeutic Goods Administration, as well as deferral periods in comparable overseas jurisdictions.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is vital that blood donations are available to save Victorian lives.
