Dr MR Shende: Organ Donation (Part I)

Dr MR Shende: Organ Donation (Part I)

More than 500,000 people die in India every year from organ failure without any hopes of receiving an organ transplant: end-stage liver disease kills 200,000 people; severe heart failure takes away 50,000 people and 150,000 people await a kidney transplant but only 5,000 get one.

Organ donation may help save a few of these lives. To know more about body and organ donation - who can donate, what organs can be donated, how does organ donation help patients, and also the misconceptions attached with the cause, please be all ears to Dr MR Shende’s talk on Organ donation at Seva-Bhaav on 90.4 FM.
