Telangana leads in adult organ donations, but lags behind in paediatric cases

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why are paediatric organ donations low in Telangana?
A: Despite a growing need for liver and intestinal transplants in children, less than 5% of organ donors in Telangana are in the 0-14 year old age group.

Q: What are some challenges in paediatric organ donations?
A: Getting suitable donors for paediatric patients can be difficult, especially if the parents’ blood types do not match, resulting in patients dying while waiting for a transplant.

Q: What efforts are being made to increase paediatric organ donations?
A: Officials from the Jeevandan Organ Donation programme are working on raising awareness about the importance of paediatric organ donations to encourage more families to consider donating organs of their deceased children.

Addressing the challenges and increasing awareness about the importance of paediatric organ donors will help more children in need of life-saving transplants get a second chance at life.
