Gay men can now donate blood

Israel has ended a restriction that effectively prohibited gay men from donating blood. Until now, any man who had had same-sex relations over the past 12 months was prohibited from giving blood. Now, the question’s wording will be changed to ask whether prospective donors have had “high risk sexual relations with a new partner or partners” during the past three months.
