Abstrakt: Blood shortages prompt policymakers to find ways to increase the supply of
blood to meet the health sector’s demand. The aim of this thesis was to examine the effects of selected incentives on blood donation. Using a questionnaire
for blood donors, the data was collected at a transfusion station in Prague. The
questionnaire focused on hypothetical choices of donors when offered a certain
type of incentive. The probit model and linear probability model were chosen for analysing the hypothetical effects of incentives and determining the
donors’ significant characteristics. The results showed that the vast majority
of respondents would donate as often as they currently do with any of the
selected incentives. A small proportion of donors would, however, respond to
the incentives. The financial incentive or small gifts would discourage a certain proportion of donors; on the other hand, offering a voucher to pharmacy
would motivate a small proportion of donors. Both probit and linear probability model revealed several important donor characteristics that affect attitudes
towards incentives. One of the most significant characteristics was gender; the
financial incentive would discourage women significantly more than men
