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. Our main aim is to address this huge discrepancy by raising awareness of the importance of organ donation, and providing specific information to allow Hindus to feel more comfortable about this issue. We need to help to make a difference and save lives.
