2017 Report Card on Canada's Blood System

November 26, 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the final report of the Commission of Inquiry on the Blood System in Canada, commonly known as the Krever Commission. The Commission was set up in 1993, following Canada’s worst public health tragedy in which 1200 people were infected with HIV and many thousands with hepatitis C through infected blood and blood products, transfused in the 1970s and 1980s.

This Report Card constitutes the sixth time in the last 20 years that the Canadian Hemophilia Society has reported to Canadians on the state of the country’s blood system.
