Organ donation Current Scenario

After the disease beyond control, transplant is the only treatment to improve survival for chronic kidney, liver, heart and eye diseases.  In India 200,000 people need a new kidney every year and 100,000 need a new liver, only 2% to 3% of the demand for new organs is met. Finding a donor match is difficult to begin with. The organ donation in india happens 0.1 per one thousand which is very dismal in comparison to international scenario. Few states like Tamilnadu has revolutionised through the intiative by the state government in association with civil society and medical fraternity.

Organ donation awareness

Organ donation is the process of surgically removing an organ or tissue from one person (the organ donor) and placing it into another person (the recipient). Transplantation is necessary because the recipient’s organ has failed or has been damaged by disease or injury.

Organ transplants save lives. Also, donor families tell us that the act of donation helps them in their grieving process. It does not take away the pain of their loss; however, it does help them to know that someone else is alive because of their loved one’s donation.

Organ and tissue donation is important. One organ and tissue donor can save the lives of up to 10 people and significantly improve the lives of many more. Smoking has a disastrous effect on health and although it is most commonly associated with lung cancer, smoking harms nearly every organ in the body. Most will gladly accept any organ that they are it is better to quit smoking and come ahead for organ donation.
