Sankalp India Foundation has been existing as a blood donor organization for the past 8 years now. Time and again, it has had to redefine it’s ways of working so as to put the best practices and methods available to improve the services it offerred both to the common man and the people from the blood banking community.
Sankalp’s Blood Donation Organization worked majorly in 3 diverse areas related to blood – Working towards providing timely help during blood emergencies, Networking of blood banks to have a statewide helpline number for blood in Karnataka and Organizing safe, quality oriented blood donation drives. With these working wings, the organization had been able to work with the best specialists and from the medicos banking community. These blood experiences have greatly helped in shaping the organization’s perspective of blood banking practices and methodologies.
After having shifted gears from Bangalore to Karnataka, the challenge with Sankalp was to provide a platform for sharing of knowledge and information among the blood banking workforce in the 150+ blood banks across the state. Sankalp India Foundation is pleased to announce the arrival of this platform – The Initiative For Better Blood Banking (IBBB).
IBBB now is offically the 4th working wing under Sankalp Blood Donation Organization. Formed with a sole purpose of improving blood banking practices in the our country by embracing latest technological advances and adopting various improved solutions to address challenges faced in blood banking, IBBB will focus on both theoretical and practical learning.
IBBB will work towards conducting workshops, seminars, scientific studies, sharing of useful general updates in blood banking practices through frequent interactions with the best transfusion specialists.
Sankalp India Foundation would pick up topics and studies that are both relevant and practical to modern day blood banking and look to conduct learning programmes, studies on these topics. Each such initiative will be headed by a senior blood transfusion specialist and look to work in a time bound manner.
