Tempo reported that the Philippines Department of Health (DoH) has re-emphasized its request for individuals to be more responsible in their blood donation, as numbers of HIV-tainted donor blood units are higher this year in comparison with the same time period for 2013. National AIDS/Sexually Transmitted Infection Prevention and Control Program Manager Dr. Gerard Belimac urged individuals at risk of HIV infection to refrain from donating blood. According to the most recent Philippine HIV and AIDS Registry Report, DoH found 114 units of tainted blood from January to March, which was higher than the 71 units reported for the same period last year.
