Summary

This project will support the invaluable task of training 100 Transplant Coordinators who do the unenviable job of counseling bereaved families to encourage them to donate the organs of their deceased loved one and save other lives. Speaking to families who have just lost a dear one is no easy task and needs to be done with sensitivity which the coordinators are trained for in addition to coordinating the entire process of donation and transplant in a timely and effective manner.

Challenge

India has a dismal organ donation rate of 0.26 per million population. There is very little public awareness on one hand and inadequate infrastructure readiness on the other. Our experience has shown that placement of trained transplant coordinators boosts the number of donations. Even though placement of coordinators has been mandated in the Act governing this work, there is no structured training program available in the country and there is an acute paucity of such trained personnel.

Solution

This project will help bridge this gap mentioned above and create a trained cadre of 100 transplant coordinators in selected parts of the country who will not just do public awareness but will also be placed in various government and private transplant centres to sensitise the medical staff, set systems in place, counsel grieved families and coordinate the entire process of donation and transplantation. The Foundation will also coordinate the placement of these trained coordinators.

Long-Term Impact

The project will create a trained task force 1). that can be employed by organ procuring agencies/major hospitals/Transplant Centres 2).who is able to manage the cadaver organ donation procedures effectively and efficiently 3). is able to work as a "positive force" to negate the efforts of scandalous kidney rackets that haunts the country and exploits the poor, and 4).influence the government to support organ donation program, thereby increasing the number of donations in the country.
