The theme for World Blood Donor Day 2024 is ‘20 years of celebrating giving: thank you blood donors!’

World Blood Donor Day is celebrated every year by people around the world on June 14. It is celebrated on the birthday anniversary of Karl Landsteiner on June 14, 1868. Landsteiner was awarded the Nobel for his discovery of the ABO blood group system.
