BEIJING — China will further promote public blood donations and expects to see 15 blood donors in every 1,000 people by 2020, according to the National Health Commission.

“The clinical use of blood will 100 percent come from voluntary blood donations in 2020,” Zhou Changqiang, an official from the commission, said at a news conference held earlier this week.

“As we mark the 20th anniversary of China implementing the Blood Donation Law, the commission will work with other departments, including the Red Cross Society of China, to launch a blood donation campaign from July to September,” Zhou said.

According to Zhou, the commission will also explore the applications of the internet, big data and artificial intelligence in precisely promoting blood donation, and improve the connectivity of blood management information across the country.
