National campaign for organ donation to be launched on Monday

Muscat: The Ministry of Health, in cooperation with the Omani Association for Organ Transplantation, will launch on Monday, the 'National campaign for organ donation', in conjunction with the Omani Organ Donation Day, which falls on 19 of December.

The campaign aims to educate community members about the importance of organ donation because it is a humanitarian act, a generous initiative, and an appropriate solution to organic failure such as kidney failure, liver failure, and other ailments from which millions of patients suffer worldwide.

Organ donation represents a humanitarian message and a saving of human lives, and a service provided by the donor to end the suffering of a patient who has been in pain for years, through which the donor obtains a great reward in this world and the hereafter. Organ donation is carried out according to controls and procedures determined by medicine, law and Sharia.

The ministerial decision issued by the Ministry of Health in March last year came to establish the national programme to organise the transfer and transplantation of human organs and tissues.
