Takatsuki City
Takatsuki City begins its own subsidy for bone marrow donors and donor employers Aim to increase the number of registered donors and bone marrow transplants ……
As part of its efforts to become an advanced health and medical city, Takatsuki City will provide bone marrow, etc. from April 1, 2020 in order to create an environment where donors can easily donate bone marrow, etc., and promote donor registration and bone marrow transplantation. We will start a new subsidy system for donors and businesses that employ such donors.
The Japan Bone Marrow Bank, a public interest incorporated foundation, runs a bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cell donation mediation project that connects patients who require bone marrow transplants to treat leukemia and other conditions with donors who can provide them. However, for bone marrow transplants, the white blood cell types of the patient and donor must match, and the probability of this happening is one in four for siblings, and one in several hundred to tens of thousands for unrelated individuals. It is said. Furthermore, even if the white blood cell types are compatible, conditions must be met, such as the donor candidate’s health status, the consent of the family to donate bone marrow, and the workplace’s understanding of bone marrow donation, which usually requires a hospital stay of about 7 days. As a result, only about half of the patients waiting for a transplant actually receive a transplant, and it is necessary to expand social systems to support donor registration, understanding from those around them, and hospital visits. I am.
In light of this situation, Takatsuki City, which is working to enhance measures related to health and medical care as an advanced city in health and medical care, has asked donors to provide information on the requirements for donation in order to create an environment that facilitates bone marrow donation. 20,000 yen per day (up to 140,000 yen) for the number of paid holidays (donor leave, etc.) taken by the donor for donation, and 10,000 yen per day (up to 7. Established a system to provide grants of 10,000 yen). The subsidy will be provided for donations of bone marrow, etc. carried out after April 1, 2021.
