On 16 November 2005, we celebrated the milestone when 10 million donors had been registered in Bone Marrow Donors Worldwide (BMDW). Since then another million donors have been added in little more than a year. It seems an appropriate time for reassessment and to ask whether we are on the right track or not. We will do so by discussing the strength, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the unrelated stem cell donor operation.
