A retrospective analysis of blood donors was done in Delhi Paramedical And Management Institute where data of blood donation camp for deferral rate and causes for deferral were analyzed in both male and female blood donors. About 320 voluntary blood donors were registered for blood donation camp, out of these 137 blood donors were accepted and others were rejected on the basis of primary screening like body weight, hemoglobin, blood pressure and other medical history. The ratio of female donor deferral was more in comparison to male donor. The main cause for female deferral was low body weight and low hemoglobin. From our study we concluded that malnourishment plays a key role in blood donor rejection particularly in females of remote areas.
