This chronology of the Contaminated Blood Scandal was created by Factor 8 and is an on-going project to pull together all key events leading up to, during and after the time infections of Hepatitis and HIV, through Factor VIII products, took place. The information compiled into this chronology is that which, through research, can be found in the Public Domain. Some of the information has been obtained through FOIA and is now therefore public. For legal and campaign reasons, key events which are not yet in the public domain may be omitted.
