Be The Match has updated its registry member eligibility guidelines to include more potential registry members who want to help save a life.

We no longer review behaviors associated with increased risk for infections like hepatitis or HIV when evaluating a potential registry member’s health history.

Safeguards are already in place to assess behaviors at the proper time. If and when a registry member is called as a potential donor, he or she completes a current health history questionnaire – which includes behavior risk questions – and undergoes highly effective infectious disease testing, using state-of-the-art technologies.

This change has been carefully reviewed by an independent external review committee to ensure donor and patient safety.
