Conditions of registration

Anyone can become a volunteer donor and can decide to give a patient an additional chance of being cured. However, it is essential the following conditions to be satisfied :

Donors must :

  • be in perfect health ;
  • be aged between 18 and 50 at the time of their registration (although donation remains possible up to the age of 60) ;
  • agree to complete a health questionnaire and provide a blood sample.

Some medical contra-indications may make donation (and therefore registration) impossible.

See the contra-indications
