In this section you will find the WMDA standards as well as information how to prepare an application package and tools to understand the WMDA standards.
The WMDA is working closely with other international organizations working in cellular therapy such as the Worldwide Network for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (WBMT) to develop and maintain global recommendations and requirements for standardized practice. WMDA launched its registry accreditation program in September 2003. Since then 20 of the 71 hematopoietic stem cell donor registries worldwide have been accredited. These accredited registries list 75% of the hematopoietic stem cell donors and cord blood units listed in the database Bone Marrow Donors Worldwide. The goal of the WMDA standards and accreditation process is to protect donors while serving the needs of patients who are urgently seeking histocompatible donors in worldwide searches.
