Slovenia Donor

Slovenia Donor is the national registry (list) of potential haematopoietic stem cells donors.

Slovenia Donor (SD), from 1992 through all the years of its existence, for many cancer patients - both adults and children – represents the hope for survival. It links donors of hematopoietic stem cells (HSC), their recipients, committed registry staff, experts in various medical and non-medical professions, and patient societies that have common goal – the treatment of severe illnesses.

Without the SD registry and its membership in the world registry World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA) and The Group of Medium Size Stem Cell Donor Registries (GMS registries), many lives would be extinguished.

For a number of years, the SD has been responsibly and diligently concerned with keeping the register expanding and to include more and more young and healthy people from Slovenia. The suitability of the donor’s HSC for a particular patient is also geographically conditional - a larger national register gives more opportunities to find the right donor for local patients.
