Republic Act 7719, also known as the National Blood Services Act of 1994, was created to promote and encourage voluntary blood donation by the citizenry and to instill public consciousness of the principle that blood donation is a humanitarian act. However, despite continuous efforts in blood donor recruitment it remains as a major challenge. The researcher aimed to determine the behavioral attributes of blood donors towards Blood donation Program in Batangas City to determine the demographic profile of the respondents in terms of age, gender, highest educational attainment and economic status or income, identify the behavioral attributes of the blood donors personal, knowledge, social, traits and attitudes, and purposely know the reasons and barriers that influence and motivates the donors in the participation in Blood Donation Program. Lastly, to formulate a framework that could help improve the blood donation program in Batangas City. This study utilized a self-created questionnaire that focused on the behavior, attitudes and responsiveness of the blood donors towards Blood Donation Program using a structured and semi-structured format. The researcher also formulated a framework that can be used by the National Voluntary Blood Services Program of the City Health Office to help them in their advocacy and attaining their target population.
