What's the Problem?
Throughout the world, there is a constant increase in the number of patients who, due to various pathologies, have a critical need for organ transplants. However, the number of organs available, whether from living or deceased donors, is very limited. This generates long waiting lists, which continue to grow each year. In 2018, according to the WHO, only 15% of the organ demand was covered, leaving more than 800,000 people waiting around the world. Even though in many countries there have been changes in the legislation in favor of organ donation, the gap between organ supply and demand continues to widen and the problem remains unsolved.
