DVNL (Dutch Blood Donor Association) is the official discussion partner of Sanquin (the only blood bank in The Netherlands) about the general interests of donors. We are an independent non-profit organisation established in 2009 and our main goal is to give donors a voice. Every registered blood donor is able to become a member for free. (So far we have approximately 6500 members and that number is continuously growing.)

Our objectives are:

  • Improvement of the communication between Sanquin and the blood donors.
  • Monitoring of the blood collection procedures.
  • Involvement with the donor policy of Sanquin.
  • Participation in the donor advisory board of Sanquin.
  • Maintain international contacts with foreign blood donor associations.

As an enthusiast member of FIODS we are glad to host the General Assembly from 30 April till 2 May 2015 in Amsterdam. Furthermore we are extremely honoured to host the World Blood Donor Day 2016 in The Netherlands.
