From 2010, Indian Organ Donation Day has been observed to honor the contributions given to the society by dead donors and their families.””It gives me great pleasure to share that the total number of organ transplants done per year in the country has increased from 4,990 in the year 2013 to 12,746 in the year 2019.

India now ranks third in the world only behind the United States and China, according to data available on the Global Observatory on Donation and Transplantation (GODT) website,” he said while speaking at the 12th Indian Organ Donation Day in the presence of Union Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Welfare Naidu.

“Similarly, the rate of organ donation has nearly quadrupled since 2012-13. The health minister went on to say that the country still has a significant disparity between the number of patients who need transplants and the number of persons willing to give their organs after death.

“Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a detrimental influence on organ donation and transplantation activities, which we aim to put behind soon,” he said. Mandaviya further reminded everyone that society is rapidly changing.

When the sanctity and value of every life become clear to everyone, persons who have committed ‘Angadaan’ would be treated with the same respect as those who give their hard-earned money to charity.

The health minister urged individuals to promise to donate their organs, spread the news about the scarcity of organs available for transplant in the nation, and motivate others to do the same.

India recently ranks third in the world in terms of organ donation and transplantation, with the total number of organ transplants performed in the country increasing to 12,746 in 2019. Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) Mansukh Mandaviya.

“All of society, including physicians, informed people, governments, and even the media, must take an active part in addressing organ donation hesitation and increasing organ donation across the country,” he stated.

The ceremony, intended to commemorate the gift of life provided by deceased donors to transplant recipients, was launched by Union Ministers to promote organ donation when the country’s need for organ replacement vastly outnumbers organ donations.

Our rich culture is built on the qualities of sacrifice and compassion. On the occasion of the 12th Indian Organ Donation Day, the promise was administered. Also, it emphasized the importance of organ donation and encouraged individuals to do so.
