In recent news, the UK government has lifted the lifetime ban on homosexual blood donation. Coming into force on November 7th, a one year waiting period will instead be used.
This change in the rules on blood donation brings the UK in line with current EU rulings. Sexual health charities such as GMFA, The Terrence Higgins Trust and the National Aids Trust are generally in approval of this change.
What do you think? Is this about time? Do you think this change in the rules doesn't go far enough? Please comment and give us your opinion on the matter.
