Sweden changes ban on gay blood donors

Sweden will end its blanket ban on blood donation by gay men on March 1, the National Board of Health and Welfare said Dec. 1.

Under the new rules, gay men who have not had sex with another man for at least a year can be approved as donors.



Some gay activists said the change is mostly meaningless since most gay men do not practice celibacy.
