Annually 80,000 blood units are collected in this center which is the biggest one in the country.

In Nepal, all collected blood is screened for HIV, Syphilis, HCV and HBV; but the country is still dependent on replacement blood donation.

Nepal Red Cross Society plays an integral role in blood transfusion activities.
