What Is The Importance Of Organ Donation?

Organ donation is a process in which you donate your organs that will be given to a person who is in need. Most common organs that are donated are the heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas.

Many organs and tissues can be donated by living donors such as part of the kidney and liver. However, most donations occur after the donor has passed away.

Why is organ donation important?

According to numbers, almost 5 lakh people lose their lives every year due to the unavailability of organs. Compared to other countries, India has a low organ donation rate.
