The OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network was originally established as the Unrelated Bone Marrow Donor Registry (UBMDR) in 1989. It is dedicated to recruiting and locating compatible, committed, healthy, unrelated donors for patients in Canada and around the world.
In 2006, we received accreditation through the World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA) – the seventh of 62 member registries to achieve this status. Achieving WMDA accreditation is an important indication that Canadian Blood Services is meeting its commitment to making stem cell donation a safe procedure for both donors and recipients.
The story of OneMatch involves equal measures of science, determination and compassion.
