3rd National Meeting of the Italian Blood System

“The frontiers of self-sufficiency. Ethics, economy, responsibility” is the theme of the 3rd National Meeting of the Italian Blood System, organized in Bologna on October 18 by SIMTI (the Italian Society of Transfusion Medicine and Immuno-Hematology) and by the Fondazione Campus of Lucca, with the support of Kedrion. The meeting will be chaired by Emilio Carelli, a Sky TV journalist, and will bring together all the main actors of the National Blood System (CNS, CRS, SIMTI, Donors’ Associations) and keynote international speakers, such as Olivier Garraud (Institut National de la Transfusion of Paris), Albert Farrugia (PPTA) and Giuseppe Nubile (Emergency). “Kedrion has been involved in the organisation of this event – Danilo Medica, Kedrion Italy Country Manager, explained – to help stir up the debate on the concept of self-sufficiency in general terms as well as in the specific area of plasma and plasma-derived products.”

Using the Italian Blood System as a case-study, the meeting will include an evaluation of self-sufficiency as a public policy goal, in the attempt to understand if and how the attitude of different communities toward this issue varies according to local cultures and traditions. “The purpose – Danilo Medica concluded – is to envisage ways of enabling non self-sufficient Systems to become independent, for example by means of national and international cooperation.”
