I have multiple sclerosis (MS). Can I donate?

Unfortunately, no. As the cause of MS is still unknown, we can’t rule out that it’s caused by a transmissible infection (like a virus) that medical science hasn’t discovered yet. 

Don't be disappointed though, because there are other ways you can help. You can spread the word about how blood saves lives on social media (find us @lifebloodau), register your intent to be an organ donor (if you’re 16 or over), or support the great humanitarian work of the Australian Red Cross

Need help?
