Staff of Tuzla's Identification Coordination Division (ICD) is handling the blood sample given by a relative of a missing person from the 1990s war in Bosnia. She is extracting DNA from the blood sample which will be stored in ICMP's databank to make identification possible. Identification of missing persons with DNA tests is only possible if a blood reference sample of a close relative is available. ICMP and ICD have made numerous campaigns to encourage relatives of war victims (many of them already living in diaspora abroad) to give blood samples to make identification possible.
