Organ Donation: Transplant Coordinators to Receive Training
The wait can be strenuous for many U.K.-based Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis in need of an organ transplantation.

To bridge the gap between demand and supply of organs, the NHSBT will work with the Multi Organ Harvesting Aid Network (MOHAN) Foundation to help train transplant coordinators understand the cultural needs of minorities.

According to experts, Asians in the U.K. wait a year longer than people of other races, and also have three times the organ need of any other community.

NHSBT and MOHAN Foundation signed a Memorandum of Understanding last Friday. The objective of the MoU is to promote collaboration and knowledge sharing between the two organizations with the aim of increasing organ donation rates in India and the United Kingdom.

Through the Memorandum of Understanding, NHSBT will help to formulate guidelines on how to approach families of brain dead donors.

The MoU will also help form policies to recognise trigger criteria for brain death, and also on optimising the potential donor.

The pact was signed by Sunil Shroff of MOHAN Foundation and James Neuberger, associate medical director for organ donation and transplantation, NHSBT, in the presence of J. Radhakrishnan, State health secretary.
