A law that aims to encourage more minds to become voluntary blood donors was unanimously voted by the Plenary of the Parliament. The law associates obtaining a driver's license with the possibility of consenting to registration in the blood donor register.

The law was passed following a proposal for a law tabled by EDEK Member of Parliament Andreas Apostolou, in order to provide the possibility to a person who submits an application for obtaining a driver's license to simultaneously submit in writing, if he wishes, his consent to be registered in the blood donor register.

Speaking to the Plenary, Mr. Apostolou referred to serious problems created during the pandemic due to lack of blood with postponements of 100 to 120 transfusions per week. The time has come, as he said, to mobilize young people to continue and expand this good tradition of donating blood that Cyprus has, by giving their consent to be called by the blood bank whenever there is a need.

He added that the consideration for this specific law proposal is a continuation of a law proposal by DISY MP Dimitris Dimitrios that was voted into law, for registration in the list of organ donors. He called on everyone to embrace this law proposal and young men and women to register in the lists to become voluntary blood donors.
