Panaji : State Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation (SOTTO) GMC, held a programme at GMC auditorium today to spread awareness and sensitise people about kidney transplant and kidney diseases. Dean of Goa Medical College Shivanand Bandekar contended that patients with kidney diseases can live a decent life if they become compliant with the doctor and follow his advice.

The dean also said that 26 transplants of kidney were done by the organisation free of cost. “People living with kidney disease should have an adequate amount of vitamin D, protein and water,” said Bandekar.
With advancement made in medical technology in relation to organ transplant, the scope of transplantation as a modality of treatment has increased the demand for organs, which as the situation stands, exceeds the supply. This mismatch raised the concerns of organ trafficking and commercialization of the organ transplant program. To address these unlawful practices, the Government of India passed Transplantation of Human Organ Act (THOA) in 1994.
 The act provides regulations on removal, storage and transplantation of Human Organs for therapeutic purposes and prevention of commercial dealings. In order to streamline the process of organ transplantation and curb instances of illegal dealings, the Government of India enacted the amendments in THOA in 2011. In supersession of the Transplantation of Organ Rules, 1995, Govt. India notified the Transplantation of Human Organs and Tissues Rules, 2014.
SOTTO-GOA ‘NAVE JIVIT’ through GMC aspires to create awareness among individuals about transplant through an honest, transparent functioning and implementation of ethical, scientific practices in all the activities related to the transplant programme.
