Palavras-chave:doação, sangue, medicamentos, carência, hemocentros, leucemia
With the occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic, which took the lives of several people and
brought to the surface social, sanitary, economic and environmental impacts, numerous
problems for the population were triggered. Amongst them, a research conducted by the
Brazilian Ministry of Health noted an alarming drop in blood donation rates and a lack of stock
in blood donation facilities. In addition, a publication by the University of São Paulo (USP) states
that storing leftover medication is a very common habit among Brazilians and, over time, was
observed a large increase in expiring drugs and medicine. The project aims to research, plan
and develop an application to improve the processes of blood and drugs for Leukemia treatment
donation. Aiming to encourage, inform and retain donation frequencies to reach higher numbers
in contribution rates. Via exploratory researches, observation, and studies directed to the
thematic and with intention of further use of data collection and handling practices, we seek a
better understanding of the phenomena involving such processes, gaining know-how on the
reasons for non-donors and inactive donors. Thus, implementing possible solutions for
contribution gathering within the application. So far, the results achieved obtained eleven
artifacts of the real project, produced from conclusions drawn within the research, achieving
established milestones of the project.
