the Organ Retrieval and Banking Organisation ( orbo ), the first of its kind in India, has been launched at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences ( aiims ). A 24-hour emergency national facility, the organisation will function under the Cardio-Thoracic Centre of the aiims . It will encourage distribution of the donated organs among all other advanced centres in the metropolitan centres, says a doctor.
The organisation will set a platform to bring the prospective donors and recipients together. The Euro transplant programme based in Leiden, Netherlands has offered to collaborate with the institute for its transplant programme.
We are a voice to you; you have been a support to us. Together we build journalism that is independent, credible and fearless. You can further help us by making a donation. This will mean a lot for our ability to bring you news, perspectives and analysis from the ground so that we can make change together.
