Introduction: Transfusion transmitted infections can cause threat to blood transfusion is an important mode of transmission of TTI to the Receipient, hence, to prevent transmission of these disease screening tests on blood bags is an important step for blood safety. AIMS and Objective: To Study the seroprevelance of Transfusion Transmitted infections in blood donors at blood bank, Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedic, SMS Hospital, Jaipur (Trauma Centre). Methods: This retrospective study was carried out in blood donors in blood bank over a period of 24 months from January-2017 to December 2018. Serum samples were screened for hepatitis b surface antigen (HBsAg), Antibodies to Human Immunodefiecincy virus (HIV I & II), HCV, syphilis and malaria. Results: A total of 33170 healthy donors were included in the study. The overall seroprevelance was 501 (1.50%). Out of which HIV was 25 (0.07%), HBsAg was 371 (1.12%), HCV was 80 (0.24%), VDRL Was 25 (0.07%) and malaria was 0 (0%). Conclusion: Methods to ensure a safe blood supply should be encouraged.
