The major international events that are motivating to receive Rio Health Department to think about campaigns and loyalty strategies for blood donors, to ensure that stocks are sufficient for events like the Confederations Cup and World Youth Day, in 2013, plus the 2014 World Cup and the Olympics in 2015.

The idea is to make the donation a cultural habit, expanding inventories not only on special occasions, but to meet the daily needs of the state. Evidence of the growing demand for blood is that, to meet the 180 hospitals in the state, Hemorio need to fill 300 to 400 bags of blood per day, which would require 500 donors daily. At the moment, however, the institution has, at most, 300 donors every day of the week, that number drops to 200 on Saturdays and 100 on Sundays.

"We are not able to meet the demand of the network hospitals.'s Important that people understand that the need for blood is daily.'s Not a matter of solidarity but of social responsibility," said Naura Faria, Head of Care Giver the Hemorio, warning that that donors make donations not registered with regularity is hindering the maintenance of inventories.

According to the Secretary of Health Surveillance, Hellen Miyamoto, the Secretariat is holding meetings to define the best tactics to attract donors. One idea is to get at least two more handsets collection currently, has a Hemorio, that leaves five times a week. The other measure is to obtain a British consulting physician Keith Grimmett, chief of staff of the London Ambulance Service, which was responsible for the blood supply of services during the London Olympics. The doctor will come to Rio in November, especially to pass on his experience to the staff of the Secretariat of Health

"In addition, we will invest in technology to modernize the processing of blood and meet the requirements of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in relation to quality of blood. Agency sets the criteria for processes such as fractionation of plasma, erythrocyte and double filtering, minimize the risk of adverse reactions from the use of blood in the population of other countries, "said Miyamoto.

According to the World Health Organization so that inventories are kept, each country or state you need at least 3% of the population donate blood. In the state of Rio, this percentage is still 1.8%.
