The origin of Organ Donation Day in Argentina

The date was established by the National Central Single Ablation and Implant Coordinating Institute (INCUCAI). It was in 1997 to remember the first time that a transplant patient gave birth in our country.

This transplant was performed in a public hospital in Argentina, and without the solidarity of the donor and the professionalism of the doctors it would have been impossible for this person to remain alive and be able to give birth, an action that is also incredible after having undergone such an operation. .

What the Law on Organs, Tissues and Cells says in Argentina

In 2018, law 27,447 was passed in our country. that regulates activities related to the obtaining and use of organs, tissues and cells. In principle, it seeks to simplify and optimize donation processes that require judicial intervention. More precisely, it states that any person over 18 years of age who has not expressed their opposition is considered an organ donor.

In addition, the law makes explicit the right to integrity and privacy of the people involved in both the donation and receipt of organs. And it provides for equal medical treatment and coverage and follow-up after your operation.
