United States Red Cross Values
- Our priority that is top is security of our volunteer bloodstream donors together with clients in need of lifesaving blood services and products. Our workers and volunteers are taught to be responsive to the requirements of all possible bloodstream donors.
- We think all prospective blood donors should always be treated with fairness, equality and respect, and therefore accurate donor records and clinically supported donor deferral requirements are critical towards the continued security of bloodstream transfusion.
- We realize that there was a huge difference between biological gender and sex. The Food and Drug management (Food And Drug Administration) guidance, “Revised strategies for decreasing the danger of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Transmission by Blood and Blood Products” states, “In the context associated with donor history questionnaire, Food And Drug Administration recommends that male or female sex be taken become self-identified and self-reported.”
