Extensive campaign helps Saudi Arabia to attract 10,000 stem cell donors

Saudi Arabia is the first country in the Arab world to record more than 10,000 stem cell donors, a medical feat that will encourage people to donate stem cells and promote stem cell therapy in the kingdom to help people suffering with incurable diseases, according to an Aug. 9 article in Arab News. 

The increased donor level is the result of intensive campaigns organized by King Abdullah International Medical Research Center (KAIMRC) in various regions of Saudi Arabia, designed to raise awareness of the donor’s role in saving the lives of people with incurable diseases.

KAIMRC, which is the medical research body for health affairs in the Ministry of National Guard, began recording stem cell donors in 2011, setting up the first national bone marrow donor registry in the kingdom to provide relevant data for patients with intractable diseases in order to facilitate them with stem cell therapy.
