As a step towards complete reporting of adverse transfusion reactions across the country in both blood recipients and blood donors, the Union health ministry is planning to launch an online platform to help access and connect with blood donors which was earlier restricted till reporting of transfusion reactions in blood recipients as part of National Blood Donor Vigilance Programme (NBDVP).

NBDVP was launched on June 14, 2015 on World Blood Donor Day at Science City, Kolkata to improve donor safety and satisfaction through monitoring, analysing and researching adverse events.

This would broaden the scope of Haemovigilance Programme of India (HvPI) in the country with the help of a software to be launched on the lines of Haemovigil software meant to collect data related to blood transfusion reactions from blood donors.

This will help complete full circle with respect to reporting adverse reactions both in terms of blood donor and recipient and hence serve the larger purpose of blood safety through HvPI. It would involve blood banks across the country to register online with a unique ID and password to uplink with the server based in National Institute of Biologicals (NIB), Noida for reporting blood donor adverse reactions.

The software development is done in collaboration with ministry of information and technology and NIB with support from National Informatics Centre (NIC).

Launched in June 2015, NBDVP will complement HvPI which currently generates reports on blood recipient related adverse reaction through a Transfusion Reaction Reporting Form (TRRF). This is then linked via Haemovigil software to NIB.

HvPI at the national level was launched on December 10, 2012 by NIB, functioning under the ministry of health and family welfare (MoHFW) to track adverse reactions associated with blood transfusion and blood product administration.

In a similar manner, NBDVP will collect blood donor data from 2,760 licensed blood banks and medical institutions through a Blood Donor Adverse Reaction Reporting Form (BDARF). It will help to analyse risk factors, implement and evaluate preventive measures, reduce frequency of adverse events  and increase donor frequency.

HvPI, which was launched at the national level by NIB aims to identify trends in adverse reactions and events, thereby to form transfusion policy, target areas for improvement in practice, stimulate research and raise awareness of transfusion hazards.
