Why sponsor AfSBT 2018 Congress?

Please join the league, save lives by sponsoring the 9th Congress of the Africa Society for Blood Transfusion, taking place at The Tanzania Convention Center, in Arusha on 19th to 22nd June 2018.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, it is estimated that 24.5% of the total maternal deaths are due to severe bleeding as the leading direct cause; and an estimated 26% are directly related to the lack of emergency supply of safe blood. Women with hemorrhage while pregnant or during delivery are at high risk of dying because once bleeding, death can occur within two hours. Medical instructions require blood transfused in less than two hours from the time it was recommended to the patient. It is crucial for women to have rapid access to adequate, safe, and affordable blood for transfusion, among other strategies to prevent maternal deaths from hemorrhage.
