To gain insight into policy formulation we have compiled epidemiologic data from five countries with different policies involving either deferral (the USA and Canada) or selective testing (France, England and Australia). The greatest risk is from semi-immune former residents of endemic areas but the greatest impact on sufficiency (donor loss) is from low-risk short-term travel.
