The Human Milk Bank (HCB) Anália Ribeiro Heck of HCFMRP-USP was created in May 1976 with the objective of encouraging and supporting breastfeeding. By designation of the State Department of Health and recognition of the National Network of Human Milk Banks, it is Reference Center for the Milk Banks of the state of São Paulo. It performs screening and selection of donors and collection of lactic surplus of nursing mothers. The bank also carries out the quality control of milk donated, processed and distributed to premature newborns. As a Reference Center it is also responsible for training and qualification of human resources. With a laboratory accredited by the Ministry of Health, it develops operational research with the provision of technical advice. As a Breastfeeding Incentive Center, in addition to providing preventive and curative supervision in breastfeeding care during the lactational period, it helps mothers in breastfeeding practices.
The Eye Bank of HCFMRP-USP captures cadaveric donor corneas for transplantation at the Hospital and other regional medical centers. Due to the ability to meet expectations for donation at the General Hospital, where the waiting queue has been reset for several times, we have managed to arrange the transportation of corneas to various regions of São Paulo, thus contributing to the reduction of visual impairment.

Human Tissue Bank
The Tissue Bank of The General Hospital of the Medical School of Ribeirão Preto of USP is located in the Emergency Care Unit and it aims to provide human tissues for transplantation.
Donated human tissues can be transplanted to correct various medical problems, such as bone failure due to fractures or tumors, ligament injuries, bone deformities, burns, that is, a series of situations in which correction without the use of human tissue would be difficult or even impossible.
In order to provide human tissue within the required sanitary standards, the Tissue Bank relies on a complex structure of clean rooms, similar to the structure of a pharmaceutical industry that produces intravenous drugs. The processing of these tissues in an environment with strict quality control like this, within the current standards, avoids the transmission of diseases.
