  • BACKGROUND: Efforts to ensure donor and recipient safety have reduced the population of eligible voluntary blood donors. The current method for determining eligible blood donors in a population using only age as the criterion for excluding donors poorly reflects the large constellation of factors known to cause donor deferrals. An epidemiologic model has been developed to determine the prevalence of donor exclusions and thus improve the estimate of total eligible blood donors in the nation.
