Copyright © 2019 Àngel Puyol In this article, I expose the ethical pros and cons of four different public blood supply policies for blood banks in order to meet the demand for blood products intended to care for the patients who need them. These four policies are based, respectively, on altruistic donation, remuneration to donors, non-monetary or nudging stimuli, and equitable obligatoriness. In the last part of the article, and after comparing the four policies, I show the ethical desirability of the last one and some of its main problems.
