Every donation saves lives: To honor all stem cell donors worldwide, the World Marrow Donor Day will take place for the seventh time on September 18th, 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be held in digital form, as was the case last year. time:matters, an expert for time-critical transport solutions and a strong partner in logistics issues in the healthcare sector, has been actively promoting the topic for years and is actively supporting the implementation of the event. The aim of the World Marrow Donor Day is to highlight global cooperation in blood stem cell transplantation and emphasize the importance of stem cell donations.
The main organizer of the event is the World Marrow Donor Association, an association of various organizations with around 39 million stem cell donors from 55 countries worldwide. This year’s celebrations on September 18th will again be purely digital – a 24-hour live stream is planned, which will be broadcast on YouTube. Donors and patients across all continents have produced special videos prior to the event.
time:matters not only supports the World Marrow Donor Association as a partner but has also proven itself as a reliable logistics service provider in the healthcare sector for almost two decades. Since 2009, time:matters has also dedicated a complete team of more than 300 qualified couriers across three continents specifically to stem cell logistics.

With its high-performance and GDP-compliant network solutions, time:matters offers excellent service, minimizes risks within supply chains and ensures business continuity at all times in this patient-oriented and highly regulated segment.
