  • Money compensation to Vologda’s donors should be paid from city budget till end of 2014

  • Head of the City Yevgeny Shulepov has submitted this initiative for consideration at the session of the Vologda City Duma that is due to take place on February 27.

    The Blood transfusion station receives dozens of requests from the hospitals, first of all, from the City Hospital № 1, every day. On the average, every patient needs about litre of blood – at least three donors are necessary for it. 70 to 100 litres must be always ready for delivery.

    It is the optimal amount of resources that is easily maintained now. But the situation was at threat at the beginning of the last year when the Federal Law “On Donorship” came into force. The number of people who wanted to donate blood reduced, the blood bank was almost emptied. Then Head of the City Yevgeny Shulepov announced an initiative to return payments at the expense of the city budget – 480 roubles for donation of blood and its components. As a result, the situation stabilized.

    About 6 million roubles were allocated from the city budget to support donors last year. The city authorities intend to maintain it in future. For the present, the compensation to the donors from the city budget is provided for the first three months of 2014. Now the Vologda’s Mayor put forward the initiative to prolong these payments till the end of the year.
