Achievements of the Kuwaiti Society for Organ Transplantation

THE SCIENTIFIC SIDE

The Association organized several regional and international conferences, which resulted in the first transfer program of members in the Middle East between Kuwait and Saudi Arabia in 1996 and this program continues with great success. These conferences also contributed to the increase in the number of donors after the death, which increased the percentage of kidney transplantation in Kuwait, which is still among the leading countries in the Middle East and the Asian and African continents. Kuwait hosted in November 2006 the Middle East Association for Organ Transplantation. Kuwait also received the honor of hosting the third International Day of Donation and Organ Transplantation in October 2007. The association participated in the organization of the first Kuwait Conference on liver, pancreas and bile ducts in March 2010.

SOCIAL SIDE

The association contributes to cover the cost of industrial dialysis for some kidney failure patients and buy expensive medicines for the kidney transplant patients as well as providing financial assistance to the needy of these groups. In cooperation with the Ministry of Health, the Society also covers the cost of transporting the deceased bodies of the deceased members and paying an estimate of the deceased's heirs. In addition to social activities such as organizing the annual Kerqejan concert, visiting patients and establishing an open sports day for patients.
