Message from the President

Dear Members,
It is indeed a pleasure to convey my good wishes to all the members of ISBTI family. As you are aware inspite of some problems amongst us we are running our activities smoothly.

Dear friends, our stalwarts worked hard to give glorious path and shape to the ISBTI. It is the only and well-known organization for promotion of voluntary blood donation and supply safe blood in the country. We have to strengthen and uplift its image.

The 14 th June 2004 was celebrated as World Blood Donor‘s Day on the eve of birth and death anniversary of great physician Karl Landsteiner, the father of modern transfusion medicine, who discovered ABO Blood group system and received Noble prize for the same in 1930. Many chapters of ISBTI celebrated this day with great enthusiasm.

Recently, on 24 th July we had a Governing Body meeting at Deharadun, which was followed by workshop on donor motivation by State AID Control Society, Uttaranchal. The workshop was inaugurated by HE Governor of Uttaranchal Shri Sudarshan Agarwal and president over by Health Minister Shri Tilak Raj. The workshop was well organized by the Project Director AID Control Society Dr. Jangpangi and his team. The action plan was prepared to increase the rate of voluntary blood donation in the Uttaranchal State. The workshop was a grand success. On this occasion Uttaranchal State Chapter of ISBTI was also announced.

In spite of repeated request, many members have not year completed their I.D. Cards,. It is again requested kindly do this formality at an earliest. So we may not face any difficulty in next forth-coming elections.

The 29 th ISBTI National Conference is going to be held at Hotel Taj Coromandel, 37 Mahatma Gandhi Road, Nungambakkam. Chennai-34 on 23rd , 24th , 25th September 2004. Hope you all have receive the information, if not kindly contact to Conference Secretariat. (See update)
