The demand for blood is growing faster than the collection rate and DBDC has requested to have an instant response to the rapid growth in blood demand which is obviously proportionate to the fast growing population of the city along with healthcare facilities.
The seasonal blood shortage occurs in the holy month of Ramadan and through the summer holidays. DBDC is the largest blood supplier in Dubai. Its services extend to Thalassemia patients (Thalassemia Center at Lathifa Hospital, Dubai), road accident and burn victims (Trauma Centre at Rashid Hospital), patients with neonates and maternity health complications (Lathifa Hospital Dubai), cases diagnosed with cancer or scheduled for open heart operations (Dubai Hospital) as well as to all private health facilities within Dubai that are entitled for transfusion services.
