NBSC gives 30 days ultimatum to Health facilities

Health facilities in the country have been given a 30-day ultimatum by the National Blood Service Commission (NBSC) to register their blood bank facilities with the commission or face sanctions.

Dr Omale Amedu, the acting Director-General of the agency, gave the ultimatum in Abuja, while briefing newsmen on the implementation of NBSC blood service regulatory policies all over the country.

Dr. Amedu said over 90 percent of health facilities in Nigeria still practice sharp and unsafe blood transfusions, exposing unsuspecting individuals to various diseases like HIV, hepatitis, syphilis and others.
