Parliament deputy speaker Mohamed Abou El-Enein stressed on Sunday the importance of issuing a law regulating blood operations and plasma collection for the manufacture and exportation of its derivatives.
During discussing a bill submitted by the government to issue a law regulating blood operations and plasma collection for the manufacture and exportation of its derivatives, within the plenary session of the parliament, Abou El-Enein said that the plasma represents a national security issue, and it means the introduction of a modern technology in Egypt to extract plasma from blood, explaining that the bill could achieve self-sufficiency.
He pointed out that Egypt always seeks to respect international rules and laws, noting that this is a basic principle and one of the goals of the law.
The Parliament deputy speaker called on the Minister of Health Dr. Hala Zayed to deliver a lecture on the importance of donating blood, how this serves the citizen, and how his body benefits from the periodic donation of blood.
He also called for the modernization and development of blood banks.
