Gay Blood Ban to be lifted

1 Mins read

The lifetime ban on gay men donating blood in Northern Ireland looks set to be lifted, according to the BBC.

This ban came into effect throughout the UK during the 1980s at the height of the AIDS Epidemic, however Scotland, England and Wales have since lifted the ban, leaving Northern Ireland as the only part of the UK where a lifetime ban is still in place.

Health Minister Michelle O’Neill is expected to make the announcement later today.
