Officers, lecturers and students of PPA actively participate in voluntary blood donation
The PPA’s students shared the red blood

As recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), if 1-3% of a country's population donates blood, it would be sufficient for the country's needs for a year. With a population of 90 million, Vietnam will need 1.8 million units of blood per year. According to statistics from the Ministry of Health in 2014, however, the total recorded blood collection in Vietnam is 1 million units, which meet only nearly 60% of need.
