Background: In Iran, despite various attempts to increase recruitment of female blood donors, women include less than 10% of the blood donors. Methods: The purpose of the study was to evaluate impact of face to face education via Train-the-Trainer (TTT) model on people’ s willingness to donate blood specially women. A field trial study was designed based on face to face educational plan for population in 22 municipally regions of Tehran (capital of Iran). The time of Study in trial 1 was between February 2010 and March 2010 and in Trial 2 was between February 2010 and March 2011. Results: Total number of volunteers in trial 2 was 9178 cases including 2785 females and 6393 males compared with 4074 cases including 454 females and 3620 males in trial 1. Female/male ratio in trials 1 and 2 were 0. 13 and 0. 44, respectively, (p< 0. 001). Of the 4074 donors, 24% (981/4074) in trial one and of the 9178 donors, 29% (2693/9178) in trial two were deferred, p<0. 001. The most common cause of deferral donors in trial 1 and 2 were secondary erythrocytosis, 20% (197/982) and anemia, 21. 5% (581/2693), respectively. Conclusions: Overall, the face to face education is an appropriate method for safe blood donor motivation and recruitment.
