Organ donations is gaining ground in the Dominican Republic
SD. At least 16 patients, six with kidney failure, two with liver problems, and eight with visual deficiencies, were benefitted with kidney, liver and cornea transplants.
The directors of the National Institute for Coordinating Transplants (Incort), Fernando Morales Billini, reported that this week they obtained four donations of bodies, in a gesture of solidarity by relatives that he appreciated because this permitted the receivers to return to society.
He said he felt that this is an example of the advancement made by the culture of organ donations in the country, and of the joint efforts of Incort, the Cardio-Neuro-Ophtalmological and Transplant Center (Cecanot), the General Hospital of the Plaza de la Salud, and the Ney Arias Lora Hospital.
He indicated that in spite of the lack of economic resources, the statistics show advances in the area of organ donations.
