You can give blood every 16 weeks, that's approximately every four months.Generally in out country when you will go to the health center to donate blood the check three important things.They are HIV,MALARIA, HEMOGLOBIN.So if you are sure before that you are not affected one of these diseases then you can go to health center to give blood center.

Who can't donate blood
Although most people are potentially able to give blood, some are not.There are a many of causes why we might ask you not to give blood, but they fall into two main categories. Firstly, if evidence suggests that donating blood could potentially harm you, then to protect your safety we would ask you not to donate. Secondly, if evidence suggests that your donation could potentially harm the patient receiving it, then we would ask you not to donate. This would include the situation where a specific behaviour may have put you at a higher risk of an infection which could be transmitted to a patient by blood.Generally in out country in the healthe care center they take three test.They are MALARIA,HIV, HEMOGLOBIN.If one of the diseases is found by testing your blood then you can't donate blood.However, there are a number of expert committees that regularly review the evidence relating to exclusions and deferrals from blood donation. Policies which specifically relate to the safety of blood for patients are recommended to the Government by the independent advisory committee on the Safety of Blood. If you are not able to give blood we know this can be disappointing. However, we hope you will understand that our overriding responsibility is to ensure the safety of donors and the safety of blood for patients.
