Greece lifts ban on gays from donating blood

The ban on gays from donating blood was lifted in Greece

The Greek Ministry of Health has introduced a new questionnaire for blood donors, which no longer indicates the presence of homosexual relationships between men as a contraindication for donation, the Kathimerini website writes.

С 80 -s, many countries around the world have introduced a similar ban in the wake of the fight against HIV and AIDS. The old form for donors in Greece also contained a provision that a man could not be a donor if he had at least one same-sex relationship since 1977.

Greece remained one of the few countries where the ban continued to apply up to this point, Kathimerini points out.
