Malaria Risk Communication Survey


One of the most common reasons for deferring a potential donor is for travel to a malaria endemic area. Malaria is transmitted by the bite of mosquitoes found in certain countries and may be transmitted to patients through blood transfusion. Blood donations are not tested for malaria because there is no sensitive blood test available for malaria.
