Cadaveric Organ Donation Figures in Tamil Nadu


INOS (Indian Network For Organ Sharing)

“Let no organ be wasted” is the mission statement of INOS. The group was formed first in Tamil Nadu in January 2000 with Apollo Hospitals, Sri Ramachandra Hospital, Sundaram Medical Foundation, Madras Medical Mission Hospital (all from Chennai), Christian Medical College Hospital, Vellore. It successfully established the fact that organ sharing was the way forward for the deceased organ transplantation programme.

In Andhra Pradesh, the hospitals that have benefited from our work are Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences, Global Hospitals, Care Hospitals, Medwin Hospitals, Mediciti Hospitals, Kamineni Hospitals, Osmania Hospitals, Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences, Star Hospitals and Innova Hospitals.
