Every year on August 13th, Organ Donation Day is commemorated. People have misconceptions and worries about organ donation as a result of a lack of understanding. The goal of this day is to encourage ordinary people to commit to donating organs after death, as well as to raise awareness about the necessity of organ donation.
Organ donation is the practice of giving a donor’s organs, such as the heart, liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, and pancreas, after they have died, in order to transplant them into another person in need of an organ.
“The key to boosting organ donation is people’s engagement and awareness.” This was said by Shri Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Minister of State (HFW), at the National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organization (NOTTOsilver )’s jubilee ceremony of The Transplantation of Human Organs Act (THOA), 1994, held here today. Shri Choubey, who issued a clarion cry for “Angdaan, Mahadaan, Mahakalyan,” said that people’s participation in this noble cause must be secured, and children must be made aware of it from the start. He invited other government ministries to join the initiative to promote organ donation.
Every year in India, a survey is conducted about:
500,000 people die as a result of organ shortages, 200,000 people die from liver illness, and 50,000 people die from heart disease. Furthermore, 150,000 people are waiting for a kidney transplant, but only 5,000 are chosen.
Organ donation has the potential to save many lives. The donor’s organ can be transferred to a patient who desperately needs it.
