Commission of Inquiry on the Blood System in Canada – Krever Report


Image for document cover.


This report describes an unprecedented public health disaster that occurred in Canada in the late 1970s and the 1980s. The national blood supply was contaminated with two infectious viruses, one causing a newly emerging disease, the other causing a disease that had existed for many years but had not previously been identified precisely. The first of these infectious agents was the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which causes acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS); the second was the hepatitis C virus.
