The purpose of this paper is to examine current primary research articles that focus on the motivations and deterrents of donating blood, in order to better understand blood donation behavior. We also discuss the reported variations of motivation and deterrents among different racial populations. We examine two theoretical models used to describe blood donation: the theory of reasoned action or theory of planned behavior (TRA/TPB) and the transtheoretical model (TTM), and how these models are used to design intervention programs aimed to recruit more donors. Finally, we summarize some of the successful strategies that have been shown to increase blood donor recruitment in various populations.
