Abstract. Recruitment of potential bone marrow donors is information and engagement (registration) of volunteers in the register of potential bone marrow donors. The entry of a potential donor into the registry is the organization of obtaining informed consent, collecting biological samples and delivering them to the laboratory. Accessibility to join the bone marrow donor registry for volunteers depends from way of collection biologic samples. There are four ways: Blood Service, commercial laboratories, post and at the event. We have developed a scale for assessing the criteria for the accessibility of entry into the register depending on the entry method. The high accessibility of entry into the register can be ensured by interaction with the Russian Post and a network of commercial laboratories that scored the highest score of 10 out of 12 during the accessibility assessment. It is possible to use the full potential of 54 million residents of the Russian Federation aged 18-45 years to form a register of bone marrow donors regardless of the territorial basis only through the interaction of large public and private structures.
