If you have recently travelled in a malaria-risk area, please wait six months before donating blood after returning to Finland. Travelling elsewhere in the country results in a 28-day donation deferral period.
Malaria occurs in the areas bordering Guatemala and Honduras, but there is no risk of malaria, for instance, in San Salvador, the country’s capital.
