The Global Blood Fund Launches Blood Equipment Portal EqXchange

The Global Blood Fund, in partnership with The Foundation for America’s Blood Centers (FABC),  launched Aidmatrix’ SCM4Giving solutions in 2013 to assist with managing members’ donations of blood-related equipment to developing countries. The program is called EqXchange and it is an online donations management portal that provides a way for members to post surplus equipment, such as centrifuges and plasmapheresis machines, that are available for donation. It also enables blood centers in resource-scarce parts of the world to post needs for specific equipment or expertise. Then the program works to connect the two. Global Blood Fund also helps provide the logistics services to transport the donations.
