Every year our nation requires about 4 crore units of blood, out of which only a meagre 40 Lakh units of blood is available. Blood donation is a safe process. Without prior medical check-ups no one is allowed to donate blood. Every blood donor is given a mini-physical, checking the donor's temperature, blood pressure, pulse and haemoglobin to ensure it is safe for the donor to give blood.
