Sustainable safe blood supply is of utmost importance in a health care system. In Hong Kong, blood donation is administered by the Hong Kong Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service, operative under the Hospital Authority. There are 7 blood donor centres, 5 of which are open on both weekdays as well as weekends and Sundays. The map shows the residence locations by District Council Constituency Area (DCCA) of 415 donors giving blood on a Sunday. While most of the donors were living in the vicinity of the Shatin and Tsuen Wan donor centre, a highest proportion (35%) gave blood at the Mongkok donor centre.

充足及安全的血液供應是醫療體系中不可缺少的一環。在香港,捐血服務是由醫院管理局屬下之香港紅十字會輸血服務中心負責。全港共有7間捐血站,其中5間會在周末周日如常提供服務。圖示某星期天的捐血者人數分佈。當天共有415名市民在5間捐血站捐血。雖然大部份捐血者的居住地較為接近荃灣及沙田捐血站,但佔最高比率 (35%) 的是旺角。
