How safe should donor blood be?
Blood services apply various safety measures to prevent the transmission of infections through blood transfusion. The costs and number of safety measures in the Netherlands is relatively high compared to other countries. From a utilitarian perspective, these measures consume resources that cold probably be used more beneficially elsewhere in the healthcare system. Koen Kramer explores the ethical arguments for applying safety measures despite their inefficiency.
