Summary

DTI helps people waiting for an organ transplant to receive the gift of life! Your donation empowers doctors and nurses from Africa, Asia and South America to implement and operate organ donation programs in their respective countries to rescue millions of lives, help people avoid lifelong dialysis and dramatically reduce healthcare costs. Giving your loved ones a second chance in life is our passion. We'll save one million lives by training thousands of medical teams on how to do it!

Challenge

Every year 1 million people are added to the list of those to receive an organ transplant. Sadly less than 10% of the surgical procedures needed globally are performed. As such millions of desperate families around the world are praying right now for an organ to become available before it is too late. To further complicate the problem, even when an organ match is found, there is a huge and growing worldwide shortage of health care professionals trained in both organ donation and transplantation.

Solution

DTI will enable miracles by training 5 medical professionals from developing countries. Comprising the world's subject matter experts on organ and tissue transplantation, DTI implements global projects designed for each country's unique needs and trains medical professionals at its state of the art facilities in Barcelona. DTI sends teams to several countries, transferring knowledge critical to develop local and sustainable medical expertise, organ donations and surgical competencies.

Long-Term Impact

Saving millions of lives. Saving billions of dollars. Using its proven model, DTI empowers its graduates with the critical knowledge needed to dramatically increase organ donations, train local medical experts as well as implement programs that reduce dependence on dialysis (costly, inconvenient and ineffective). Countries implementing DTI solutions as health care policy spare millions of families needless suffering. And governments can better mobilize their precious healthcare resources.
