Blood donation is an indispensable component of health care. It contributes to saving millions of lives each year. There are millions of blood donors all over the world but there are number of countries that do not have adequate number of blood supplies and face the challenges of blood donation all over the world. The present study has adopted a descriptive survey design. A total of 60 students of Govt. Sr. Sec. School, Dhankot, Gurugram, Haryana were selected for the study. Data was collected from the students regarding blood donation. The primary outcome measured was the knowledge regarding blood donation among the group. The study revealed that majority of adolescent students (70%) had an average knowledge regarding blood donation. An association between knowledge score and socio-demographic variables was determined with the help of chi-square test and it was found to be non-significant.
