Organ donation is the activity of donating a organ of the body from a living or a dead person to a recipient who needs the organ for transplantation.
The organ is transplanted from the donor after getting registered with a organ donation trust or organization.
Every day more than 79 people undergo transplantation surgical procedures and 18 people die due to the shortage of required organs for transplantation. In the year 2010, 62% of donors were women and more than 1 million individuals have registered to be donors.
Over 74.9% of individuals who got their heart transplanted, 73.6% of liver transplants, 669.3% of kidney transplants are living from 5 years after performing transplantation.
