Letters of Support

Canadian Blood Services held a series of consultation meetings with affected patient and community groups. This process resulted in people sharing their many different points of view, resulting in a greater understanding of their positions.

The feedback participants provided helped shape our request to Health Canada to change to the current MSM deferral policy. Letters of support for this incremental change were sent to the Federal Minister of Health and shows the will and desire to work together to reach a common goal.
