Organ Transplantation and the development of a Deceased Organ Transplantation Network

Print E-mail
Trinidad and Tobago, 8th July, 2012. Dr Colin Furlonge, Principal Medical Officer of the Ministry of Health has indicated that “To do organ transplantation, we need a steady supply of donated organs. But at the moment, organ supply is always less than demand. Currently we are functioning with only living donors, who can only help 1 person at a time. What we need also are deceased donors. Every deceased donor can possibly help several persons at once - for instance, a living donor can only give 1 kidney. Whereas, 1 deceased donor can give 2 kidneys to help 2 persons. Giving the gift of life after death is indeed a remarkable act of kindness.” .
