• Celebrating 50 years of the Anti-D program

    Since 1967, the lives of countless babies have been saved by the pioneering Rh Program - and to date, over three million doses of anti-D have been given to Rh negative women. 

    The program provides plasma collected from blood donors with anti-D for production of anti-D immunoglobulin for treatment of Rh D negative women with babies at risk of haemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (HDFN).

    The following two presentations commemorate 50 years of the RhD Program and look at the prevention of Rh HDFN
