Ending the Discriminatory Blood Ban

The blood ban encourages stigma and ignorance around queer men’s and trans people’s health, and also undermines Canada’s supply year-round.

To help inform Canadians on this important issue, we’re releasing our newest policy paper, "Ending the Discriminatory Blood Ban: A Safe, More Inclusive Blood Supply".

The paper makes the case for a gender-neutral donor screening process – deferring potential donors based on their practices, not their sex assigned at birth, their sexual orientation or the gender or sex of their partners.
