Organ Donation Delays

Organ Donation Delays Organ Donation Delays

One person dies every 2-3 hours due to delays in receiving an organ, said Dr Katayoun Najafizadeh, head of the Health Ministry’s Organ Donation and Transplantation Center. “Annually, around 3,200 brain dead people are able to donate organs; however only the families of 800 patients give consent for organ donation,” IRNA quoted her as saying. A two-fold increase in the number of brain dead donors can decrease the demand for live kidney donations to zero, she added.
