INDIA’S health services are looking to Spain to develop their organ donor infrastructure.
Spain’s Health Minister Ana Mato Adrover is set to sign a pact with the Indian government to teach Indian surgeons and health authorities the best organ transplant practices.
Spain has the world’s highest percentage of organ donors – 35.3 per million – and is a pioneer in the field.
On a visit to Madrid, Indian Health Minister Harsh Vardhan said Spain’s organ infrastructure ‘offers a perfect model from which we can borrow’.
He added: “I would like our own National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation to have the same high standards as Spain’s and I am grateful that the Spanish Health Minister has offered full technological assistance.”
