Roadmap 2020

In October 2014, APEC representatives convened in Manila, Philippines for the first policy dialogue to share experiences and develop a path forward for APEC to support blood safety. The meeting convened representatives from 20 of the 21 APEC Economies, including senior leaders from government, academic institutions, the private sector, civil society, and international organizations to identify key blood safety issues in the region and to discuss how APEC economies can work together to build the capacity of their blood services, infrastructure, and governance and promote the achievement of international safety and quality standards for the blood supply chain. APEC representatives subsequently adopted the APEC Blood Supply Chain 2020 Roadmap, launching a long-term multi-sectoral effort to address blood safety in the region that would support the translation of global blood safety policy recommendations and local economy blood safety plans into concrete, measurable results.
