The three-day conference is being organised by ISBTI J&K Chapter and PG Department of Immunohaematology & Transfusion Medicine, Government Medical College, Jammu.
He congratulated the organizers for bringing together Transfusion Medicine specialists, eminent faculty, experts, and multiple stakeholders from across the country to discuss current trends, recent advances, and future challenges in Transfusion Medicine.
One drop of blood covers the entire health universe and I am confident such deliberations will enable stakeholders to refine blood transfusion services in the country.
Observing that our ongoing health research is more focused on reactionary treatment and share of diagnostic research is negligible, he said, we have a huge responsibility to transform the ongoing medical research system and long term investment should be made for developing diagnostic kits.
According to statistics, one out of every fourth person needs blood transfusion at some point in their life and in every two seconds someone in our country needs blood transfusion.
