About DKMS

What does the abbreviation DKMS stand for?

DKMS stands for ‘Deutsche Knochenmarkspenderdatei’, or German Bone Marrow Donor Centre. But as we became more international, we extended our mission to include Poland, the US, the UK, Chile, India and South Africa. To give ourselves a standard identity worldwide, we decided in 2016 to use the same name everywhere – DKMS – to make us identifiable worldwide as a single organisation that operates under a single name.

There are so many ways to get involved and support our mission.
You could help to raise awareness, join the register, or take on a fundraising challenge.
