Egypt to Expand Plasma Donation Centers to 20 Nationwide

The Ministry of Health and Population has launched a promotional campaign to encourage plasma donations in mid-July, prompting 281 people to donate plasma thus far.

To encourage Egyptians to give plasma, the Ministry of Health and Population is expanding the number of plasma donation centres from six to 20 within the year.


Plasma is used to provide aid to patients with chronic blood diseases, liver problems, kidney complications, or skin burns. Currently, there are six centres across five governorates, including Minya, Alexandria, Tanta, Gharbia, and Cairo. The ministry has launched a promotional campaign to encourage plasma donations in mid-July, prompting 281 people to donate plasma thus far. 


In order to be an eligible donor, you must be over the age of 18, be in good health, and you must not have donated any blood over the last three months. In Cairo, you can visit the Dr. Ihab Serag El-Din Center for Blood Transfusion and Plasma Collection Services in Agouza, the Regional Center for Blood Transfusion and Plasma Collection in Abbasiya, or the Regional Center for Blood Transfusion in Dar es Salaam.
