 Website Launched for Organ Donation in Jaipur: Rajís Promise to State

It is a novel idea to come up with a website to register for organ transplant. Minister Rajendra Rathore launched the website www.rnos.org on Saturday. Mohan Foundation's managing trustee, Dr. Sunil Shroff and Jaipur Citizen Forum's Chairman, Rajiv Arora were also present at the launch. Patients can now directly register online for their organ transplantation needs by just visiting this website. This will enable lesser waiting time for needy patients.

The website maintains a Toll Free Organ Donation Helpline and has specific links to various organs, viz., kidneys, liver, heart, lungs, cornea, cardiac valve, pancreas and multi visceral. It also specifies the approved hospitals for transplant. It has many other useful links. Registering on the website will make sure that organ transplant is done according to the patients' waiting list. The patients' name gets registered for the appropriate organ transplant and at the approved hospital.


The programme launched by the Government of Rajasthan is similar to that of the cadaver transplant programme run by Tamil Nadu and Kerala. It is notable that both these states are at the forefront of the programme in the county. Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka are the other states maintaining an organ-sharing network. Jaipur now holds the pride of being the first northern state to launch a web registry for organ transplants.

SMS Hospital in Jaipur will soon have heart transplant facility. The hospital has been directed to make full-length plans to enable cadaver kidney transplant reality within 50 days. Rathore has promised all support to SMS hospital in this venture. He also stated that road accident victims who were brain dead can donate a number of organs and the need for awareness creation among the affected families is significant.

Mohan Foundation managing trustee Dr. Sunil Shroff said, "Since diabetes and hypertension has become quite common, the cases of kidney ailments have also increased which has pushed up the demand for kidney transplant. There is a huge shortage of kidneys in comparison to the demand of kidney to be transplanted." He also stated that cadaver transplant can organ shortage can be dealt with if, all of the brain dead people donate their organs to the needy. An estimated 60 percent of 1.4 lakh accident victims every year are reported brain dead.
