Any barriers putting members of the Asian community off donating organs will be tackled at a conference in Leicester today.
Although almost a quarter of all patients awaiting transplantation are of Asian origin, only 1.3% of subjects registered for organ donation are from an Asian background.

We need to help to make a difference and save lives.
