Organ Donation

Organ Donation is the process of surgically removing a healthy organ (part of the body needed to carry out a specific function such as liver, heart, etc) or biological tissue (cornea of the eye, heart valve) from one person (Donor) and transplant to a living recipient whose organ has failed or not working properly due to disease/injury.

Need for Organ Donation

Approximately 0.5 million Indians die every year because they did not receive organ transplantation due to the unavailability of organs (Figure 1)
