Description:


Many Asian countries are struggling to establish an efficient and ethical deceased organ transplantation program to reach self-sufficiency. Major challenges in capacity enhancements include not only hospital infrastructures but also in efficient deceased donor identification and management by organ procurement organizations (OPOs) based on societal consensus supporting deceased organ donation and ethical legal background. To overcome hurdles in establishing a good national program, the support of the Government through the national transplantation organization is critical.

Learning Objectives:


  • To learn major hurdles and strategies in establishing a national deceased organ donation and transplantation program

  • To build medical and social capacities for enhancing self-sufficiency to overcome organ shortage
