Navjeevan Project | An initiative by Jaipur Citizen Forum with MOHAN foundation
Transplantation of human organs from one human being to another is undoubtedly one of the greatest medical breakthroughs of this century –one that has transformed tens of thousands of lives. It is unfortunate, however, that few Indian patients in need are able to benefit from this medical advancement.
It has been estimated that 200,000 people in India are annually diagnosed with organ failure needing transplantation as part of life saving measure. A majority of these patients are young where their only hope to a life is by the opportunity of having a transplant of their organ in failure.
