2. Problem Statement
A growing epidemic of the unavailability and acute shortage of safe blood supply during
emergencies, is at an all-time high in Bangladesh.
• According toWorld Health Organization (WHO) Bangladesh, compiled reports from blood
transfusion centers under public and private sectors revealed that over 600,000 units of blood
were collected in 2016 against an estimated demand of 800,000.
• Of the collected blood, only 31% comes from voluntary donors.
• More than 2/3 of blood donations come from relatives and friends of the patients.

a team on to design and build an app with real time live updates and

- User interface (UI) design
11. Logo Iteration-

disturbing and symbolized
danger more than having a
neutral effect so it was changed

feel easy in the eyes.
14. Audience stories
• User 01 (Medical Staff)
Name: Sumaira Tazrin
Occupation: Doctor (Gynaecologist)
Feedback: “It is a stressful procedure to
wait for patient attendants to manage
blood donors. We sometimes have to
announce or even “shout” for voluntary
blood donation outside the corridors for
people to come help. It would be of great
utility to have an app where area based
donors can be found, who can run to the
nearest hospital in case of emergency
Dr. Tazrin analalysing the app flow.
15. Audience stories
• User 02 (Donor)
Name: Abdul Aziz
Occupation: Student at Dhaka University
Feedback: “I would like to know what to
consumer after donating blood and what
activities I should refrain myself from. It is
essential to know that my blood has enough
hemoglobin to donate and ensure I am ready
to make donating a safe and pleasant
Mr. Abdul Aziz, analysing the app flow.
17. Future plans
• Although this is only the initial stage of the design process, many
more amendments need to be made according to recent user
feedback, taking some into consideration such as:
• Add donor report
• Track who the blood is going to
• Activities / food habits before, during and after blood donation
The app shall be iterated for further investigations in enhancing user
experience in the future.
