The Minister of Health, MK Yael German, Wishes to Consider Changing the Clause relating to Sexual Relations of Men with Men in the Questionnaire for Blood Donors
​The Minister of Health, MK Yael German, has asked the professional tier to reconsider the questioning required in the Blood Donor’s Questionnaire, with emphasis upon consideration of Clause 2.6 in Part 2 of the questionnaire, which relates to the response to the question about “sexual relations of men with men, since 1977”.

Immediately after the Passover holiday, the Transfusion Medicine Advisory Committee will convene to discuss the issue. The Committee will invite professional parties with an interest in the topic as well as the leaders of the homo-lesbian community, in order to hear their position, and to consider changing the clause if possible.
