Background: Hepatitis B and C virus infection in Bangladesh continues to be a public health problem for the last few decades. Transfusion related hepatitis is a major concern among the transfusion medicine community in Bangladesh. Objectives: This study was conceded out to characterize the security profile of Bangladeshi healthy blood donors and to point out the importance of screenings programs that must be applied, and also patterns of virus positivity among different age & sex groups were determined. Patients and methods: Through out this study we reviewed the testing records of 3048 healthy blood donors (Male-2680 and Female-368) who presented by random at blood bank’s records from January 1st, 2010 to December 31st, 2010 at a private Hospital in Dhaka, Bangladesh. All the samples were examined using 3rd generation enzyme linked immunosorbant assays for Anti-HCV and HBsAg (+ve) detection. Statistical Analysis was done using standard procedure. Results: The study found the overall predominance of HBsAg (+ve) was 1.24% and Anti-HCV was 0.17%. Predominance of co-infection with HBV and HCV was 0.00%. Conclusions: Impact of this paper will help to provide information on the current risks of blood transfusion in Bangladesh thus to advice of alternatives to transfusion can mitigate some of those concerns now and near future.
