Abstract:

This is a retrospective study to know the seroprevalence of HIV, HBV, HCV, Syphilis and malaria among voluntary donors in a tertiary care hospital.

A total of 7836 blood donors were screened during a period from June 2013 to December 2016, at Malla Reddy Medical College for Women, Jeedimetla, Hyderabad, Telangana state. Among 7836 donors, 6660 (85%) were replacement donors and 1176(15%) were voluntary donors. Seropositivity for HIV was (0.5%), HBV (1.2%), HCV (0.85%) Rapid Plasma Reagin method for syphilis and thick smear examination for malaria were negative in all the donors. Our study showed that there is a gradual increase in the Transfusion Transmitted infections in blood donors in our region.
