Funding and Distribution of Solvent Detergent Treated Plasma
In 2011, the Provinces and Territories approved the funding and distribution of solvent detergent treated plasma (S/D Plasma) by Canadian Blood Services for specific patient groups as recommended by the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH). Subsequently, the Provincial / Territorial Blood Liaison Committee requested NAC to develop further framework regarding the distribution and handling of S/D Plasma and to collaborate with Canadian Blood Services to identify a suitable mechanism by which S/D Plasma would be routinely available only for the specific patient groups identified.
The process by which S/D Plasma is available to patients is supported by the Provincial and Territorial Ministries of Health.
