Department Of Organ Donation
Currently in India, the organ donation rate is 0.5 donors per million population as compared with more than 30 donors per million in foreign countries. This has led to a serious shortage of organs and the gap between the number of organs donated and the number of patients waiting for transplants is on a rise.
Close to half a million Indians die as they fail to get organ transplants on time.
