Abstract

Effective recruitment and retention of male donors is vital for the ongoing provision of blood products. Compared with females, male donors are less likely to be medically deferred or experience vasovagal reactions and are typically preferred for plasmapheresis donation in voluntary non-remunerated settings. However, females outnumber males among donors aged under 40 years. This systematic review aimed to synthesise evidence and identify key motivators for blood donation among males to inform targeted recruitment/retention campaigns.
