Bancos públicos no meu país

Bancos públicos de sangue de cordão têm como objectivo oferecer um serviço à comunidade. Os bancos públicos recolhem e armazenam doações de sangue de cordão umbilical de dadores saudáveis. Em caso de compatibilidade estas amostras serão utilizadas num transplantes de células estaminais. No Brasil o registo de doações é feito através do REDOME. Pacientes que têm doenças genéticas raras têm uma maior probabilidade de receber um transplante de sangue de cordão. De forma a poderem doar o sangue de cordão a um banco público o nascimento tem de ocorrer num hospital que aceite doações.
