National registry of organ and tissue donors- challenges

  1. Those in the field point out that most transplants are taking place in private hospitals
  2. Until the government makes it mandatory for them to share data, they will remain cagey
  3. Also, there is no compulsion for State governments yet to share their data
  4. Maintaining donor confidentiality
  5. Ensuring that it is an inclusive exercise
  6. There are only 200-300 licensed hospitals to harvest organs and do transplants
  7. As a result, there are people willing to donate organs but do not know where to go

National registry of organ and tissue donors

  1. It is being developed by NIC
  2. Partly developed and is accessible through the NOTTO site
  3. Advatages: Will help in maintaining data and surveillance
  4. Will also be used for academic research and to study outcome
  5. After the transplant, patients have to be followed up and even that data should be fed
  6. This will help figure out the post-transplant survival rate
  7. It’s an ambitious plan

Prognosis is good for India’s organ transplant programme

  1. What? Meeting of the National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation (NOTTO), National Informatics Centre (NIC) and other stakeholders
  2. Why? To draw a road map for documenting patient progress, networking all transplant hospitals of the country
  3. Also to figure out the official policy to treat out-of-turn requests for organs
  4. Background: India’s still nascent organ transplant programme is making progress
  5. It’s not just things like life-saving traffic green corridors that are smoothening out the wrinkles
  6. Efforts to increase the knowledge base are taking off and crucial policy decisions are taking shape
  7. These are triggered by recent events in organ transplants
