Objective: establish the main social preconceptions related to the voluntary donation of blood. Methods: a descriptive transversal study of a sample of 100 adults. The data was gathered through the application of surveys conducted during the months of July to December of 2010. The variables were: age, sex, origin, social and financial status, level of education and main preconceptions related to the donation of blood.
