BLOOD TRANSFUSION SERVICES
PWA’s Voluntary Blood Bank is the largest single outlet blood bank of Pakistan, registered under Sindh Blood Transfusion Authority (SBTA). Blood Transfusion Services are offered round the clock with a daily output of around 150 screened blood bags, Free of Cost. Blood products in the form of packed red cells, fresh frozen plasma, and platelets, are provided according to the patient’s need. To ensure safe blood transfusion, PWA uses Chemiluminescent Immunosorbent Assay (CLIA) technology to carefully screen each blood bag for HIV, Hepatitis B & C, RPR for Syphilis, and ICT for Malaria as per WHO guidelines.
Since its establishment in 1982 through continuous voluntary blood donations, PWA has been providing regular blood transfusions to all registered and unregistered thalassemia patients. In addition to them, we have also been dispatching blood products to the needy at Dr. Ruth. K.M. Pfau, Civil Hospital Karachi and by extension, throughout the city.
