The main topics at the Congress will be: blood donation, immunohaematology, blood components, clinical transfusion and haemovigilance, haemostasis and haemostasis disorders, cellular therapies and transplantation medicine, blood safety and quality management in transfusion medicine. We also plan to establish the Technician Day within the Congress, which will gather a large number of the technicians employed in the blood transfusion centers in the country and abroad.

This Congress will be an excellent possibility for professional networking with colleagues and the representatives of the exhibitors. We will work hard to offer you a stimulating educational and scientific program and provide you with a memorable and engaging social program.

The Congress will take place in Skopje, the capital of North Macedonia, a beautiful city in the south of the Balkans with rich history and a lot of historical monuments, well known generosity and the unique atmosphere in its streets and restaurants.
