About Hussaini Blood Bank

Husaini Blood Bank (HBB) is a public health organization working for the welfare of the people of Pakistan It was established in the year 1979 by late Dr. Hasan Ali Vajid inside his clinic located in Soldier Bazaar, Karachi. The objective behind the establishment of the blood bank was to provide Safe Blood to the Patients’ Community at large without any discrimination of caste, creed, race, religion or color. In addition to its main office atKarachi, HBB has sub offices and affiliated department/NGOs all over the country. Through these outlets following projects, social development and health services are being offered and implemented. Hussaini Blood Bank was started on a very small scale but by the grace of almighty Allah and with the sincere, selfless and devoted leadership, this organization has grown into one of the largest blood transfusion service centers in South East Asia with annual turnover of more than 135,000 units of blood and its components and the graph has a rising trend every year. The blood bank has a facility to split one unit of whole blood into 6 different blood components. Besides, there are 10 computerized Apheresis machines used to extract any particular required component of blood from a healthy voluntary donor. This technology enables to extract certain components to a maximum limit of 15-20 units out of single donor without causing any injury to the donor. Otherwise it would require 15-20 blood donors. The blood bank has been maintaining the pride of being pioneer in adopting advanced blood bank techniques. At present other blood banks in the country are striving to achieve ELISA based blood screening system while Hussaini has switched over from conventional ELISA to the most advanced Chemiluminescent technology for blood screening to go one step ahead and ensure safe blood for the patient community. On the basis of diversified services in the field of haematology and oncology, the organization was given a broader based name i.e. Husaini Haematology & Oncology Trust under which there is a blood bank, a Thalassaemia centre and an institute of haematology. The organization is run by a trust having a board of trustees with one managing trustee. Under the managing trustee there is a team of dedicated, qualified and experienced professionals. The administration and finance personnel include MBA’s, CA and ACCA while the medical team comprising of haematologist, pediatrician, dental surgeon, clinicians, blood bank physicians, blood bank technologists and technicians. Besides providing routine blood transfusion services, this team has been serving the nation in all sorts of emergencies and natural disasters like earth quack, bomb blasts and in epidemics like Dengue & Congo viral fever etc.  


Hussaini Thalassaemia Service

In the year 1993 after the death of Dr. Hasan Ali Vajid ,his son Dr. Muhammad Ali Vajid founded a new wing of the blood bank in the name of Hussaini Haematology & Oncology Services to provide healthcare facilities to Thalassaemia Patients. 

Hussaini Institute of Haematology

Safe blood is not possible without professionally trained blood bank technicians. As the blood banking is a very specialized branch of medical science, there was a shortage of professionally trained blood bank personnel in the industry. To overcome this shortage, Dr. Muhammad Ali Vajid established an institute in the year 2000 in the name of Husaini Institute of Haematology. The institute offers one year Diploma course in Blood Banking and Transfusion Medicine. The institute is registered with Sindh Board of Technical Education. 

Husaini Thalassaemia Centre is a daycare centre of its own kind providing comprehensive medical care to 600 hundred registered and more than 100 unregistered Thalassaemia patients.
