The European Blood Alliance is delighted to introduce the 6th edition of the European Conference on Donor Health and Management, taking place on 10-12 September 2025, in Wijk aan Zee, the Netherlands and kindly hosted by Sanquin.

The ECDHM brings together leading researchers, experienced management professionals, medical experts, recruitment professionals and professionals from government organisations in the field of Donor Health and Donor Management.


The focus of the conference is Sustainability in Donations. Sustainability in donations implies well-informed voluntary donors who are committed to donating substances of human origin (regularly). They form the basis of a sustainable, healthy pool of donors that can provide a safe, reliable and sufficient supply of products in all situations and at all times.

The conference is an all not-for-profit conference, and we are very grateful to all stakeholders, sponsors and attendees for making this conference possible.
