Dr. Shroff spoke about the rise in kidney ailments due to diabetes and hypertension that in turn has pushed up the demand for kidney transplants and adding further that how cadaver transplant could resolve the problem to some extent.He said that every year in India 1.4 lakh people meet with accidents. About 60% are reported brain death among them. If all of them (brain dead) donate their organs to save other’s life, the shortage of organs can be dealt with swiftly.   During the meeting, the private hospital’s representatives and the government hospitals representatives held a discussion with different views on Tamil Nadu and Kerala model, which are at forefront of organ transplant. It has been decided to evolve a cadaver transplant programme on similar lines as the states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala in Rajasthan.   Dr Shroff shared the sharing protocol in Tamil Nadu. If the cadaver donation is reported in private hospital one kidney can go to that particular private hospital and the second one can go to the combined government and private hospital’s patients from the waiting list. The government doctors argued that the second kidney should be given to government hospitals on priority as it will benefit the poor patients. Later, it was decided that in three days, the private and government hospitals discuss the matter and reach an amicable solution to resolve the matter.   Health Minister Sh Rathore directed the officials of SMS Hospital to prepare a plan and step up preparation so that cadaver kidney transplant could become possible within 50 days and make arrangement for cadaver liver transplant in the hospital in 90 days. He said that the government would extend all possible support to the SMS Hospital and other stakeholders in organ transplant. He said a large number of organs could be donated by persons who were brain dead owing mainly to road accidents. The awareness has to be created so that the families of these patients are motivated enough to allow and facilitate the donation.   Health Minister Rajendra Rathore launched a web-registry of the recipients for organs by clicking the site of ‘Rajasthan Network for Organ Sharing’ (http:....
