According to PRC, interested participants need to meet the following requirements: must be generally healthy, between ages 16 to 65 years, weigh at least 110 lbs or 50 kg, and pass the physical and history screening to be conducted by PRC staff.

The humanitarian organization also reminded that donors must have at least five to six hours of rest and sleep, have not taken alcohol for 24 hours, and have already eaten except fatty food prior to blood donation.
