Cuba Fosters Organ Transplant Program
According to experts, the program contributes to detect and provide care to potential donors to guarantee the success of surgery.

Some 4,000 kidney transplants, more than 100 heart and liver transplant, as well as pancreas-kidney and lung transplants have been performed since 1970 to date.

Transplants were debated at the Congress of the Ibero-American and Caribbean Society of Transplant Coordinators and Organ, Tissue and Cell Donation, held in Cuba recently.

The meeting brought together delegates from a score of countries, who exchanged experiences on keeping donors alive, diagnosis of death, information and communication with the patient's family and development of immunology.
