In Asia, there exist a female predominance of living donors, whereas fewer women receive a transplant than men. The problem of gender disparity involves all aspects of transplantation, right from access to medical care to post-transplant follow-up. It is not limited to any geographic region and developing nations are worst affected. An unusually high number of female donations with relatively fewer female recipients is not only culpable to the low economy, but a congregation of medical, social, cultural, psychological, and religious factors.
