Three major features set French transfusion medicine apart from other international models: in France, blood donation is underpinning by four founding principles : it is anonymous, voluntary, non-remunerated and not-for-profit. aEthical blood donationa is the foundation of the French model; - this model is led by a single government agnecy, the EFS, which has a monopoly over the distribution of labile blood products to ensure constant availability across the country; - delivery is inseparable from immunohaematology (the EFS is the largest medical testing laboratory in France) and transfusion support, which is also provided by the EFS, to guide the prescriber towards the aright prescriptiona (the right product for the right patient). Through the EFS, the French State is therefore responsible for selfsufficiency, health safety and the efficient management of the rare and precious commodity that is human blood. The French model is one of the few to provide both aethical blood donationa and internationally recognized efficiency.They receive and analyze all reports on the use of medical devices in their region . ... of the IVDD must be assessed against the expected results, known interferences and acknowledged limitations of the method, as indicated in its user manual.
