Carla Peterson, President Elect ADRP International Blood Safety Forum, March 20, 2015 A Global Network Dedicated to SHARING Information to Improve the Recruitment of Donors Worldwide Year-Round ADRP Mission Statement ADRP educates and empowers professionals who are committed to donor recruitment, donor experience and donor management by providing a forum for networking, professional development and resource sharing. ADRP Position on Volunteer Blood Donation ADRP is in full support of The World Health Organization’s (WHO) goal for all countries to obtain all blood supplies from voluntary unpaid donors by 2020 in accordance with World Health Assembly resolution 28.72, which was adopted in 1975. • In 2013 ADRP adopted a position statement regarding this issue which reads: • The Association of Donor Recruitment Professionals (ADRP) encourages all blood services to support donors and donor groups through education and discourages the use of any incentive or reward for blood donors or donor groups that could potentially compromise the safety of the world’s blood supply. Such consideration is particularly important in an environment in which competition exists between 2 or more blood services and in which the prospect of escalating reward programs is possible. International Partnerships • ADRP Global Committee member, working with the blood center in Chihauhua, Mexico has trained donor recruitment staff, and partnered with Global Blood Fund to help deliver buses for blood collection. • This improvement and it’s strategies and positive results were shared at the ISBT Congress in Cancun, Mexico in 2013, in hopes to interest others to make similar changes to programs. International Partnerships • In September 2014 ADRP leadership participated as panelists in the 1st European Conference on Donor Health and Management in the Netherlands. • In November 2014 ADRP leadership presented for the first time at the Chinese Society of Blood Transfusion semi Annual Congress. • On five occasions ADRP has sent speakers and trainers to China to help support their requests for learning about blood donor recruitment strategies. • ADRP is also working with Chinese leadership to potentially schedule an ADRP conference in China.
