Questions on Homosexuality and Blood Donation on Agenda


The Advisory Committee for Blood Transfusion Medicine will convene, immediately after the Passover holiday, to review the questionnaire that blood donors are asked to fill out. Emphasis is being placed on the question about homosexual relations since 1977.

Health Minister Yael German asked to check if the question was necessary. The committee will summon the relevant professional bodies as well as leaders of the gay and lesbian community to hear their position and see if change is possible.
