A lecture on organ donation
awareness was given to the Akhil Bhartiya Mahila Parishad, Haryana
and the members of the Lioness Club at Rewari, Haryana on 20th October
2010. About 100 ladies pledged for cadaveric organ donation with MANODA.
Human organ donation is fast developing into a major treatment protocol. However it is yet to make any significant dent in India. A country with a population of over 1 billion people, India lags behind in the implementation of a cadaveric donation programme. Every year, while over 100,000 Indians suffer from End Stage Renal Disease, only 3,000 are recipients of a donor kidney, of which only a small percentage are cadaver organs.. The major problem now facing transplant surgery is a critical shortage of available organs, though the supply could commensurate with demand had there been awareness in this regard.UNdoubtedly, the medicos of the country could perform a paramount role in generating such awareness among the masses.
