When I read your letter, the first thing that came to mind was if I needed blood, the only thing I would want to know was that it was tested and clean. Would anyone really care where it came from as long as it's clean going in? Who in their right mind would rely on people answering truthfully on those questionnaires? Some people might even give false information unknowingly or unintentionally.
Maybe I'm just naive, but I was under the impression that the chances of being infected with AIDS/HIV through a transfusion were nil in this day of high-tech testing capabilities.
