In 1963, Mongolian blood transfusion service was established officially with the independent creation of Blood Transfusion Central Station in Ulaanbaatar. In the following year of 1964, rural blood centers were organized under the provincial central hospitals in all provinces, thus blood transfusion care and service has started nationwide. In 1994, Mongolian blood transfusion service has shifted from paid blood donation practice to the non-remunerated and has achieved a 100% voluntary non-remunerated blood donor, in 2016. With the increase in the number of dedicated refrigerators and freezers, blood samples can be stored for 1 year, which is crucial for tracking post transfusion reactions and research use. Since 2005, the laboratory has been regularly involved in the external quality assurance program for the quality of TTI testing funded by the WHO and the Global Fund.
