Organ donation will be allowed for non-relative persons in Azerbaijan

“Registration of the persons who made his will to donate and who wish to donate is expressed in the project. The project was also proposed to include the article on conducting a registry of transplantologists, and this issue may also be discussed,”  said deputy chair of the Health Commission of the Milli Majlis Musa Guliyev during the hearings on organ transplantation in parliament organized by Health Commission of the Milli Majlis, ONA reports.

M. Guliyev noted that if a person agreed while he was alive, his organs could be donated after he underwent brain death: “If he did not give his approval and did not have a will on utilization of his organs for transplantation, in this case the approval of the nearby relative is enough. There were proposals for getting approval from all his children, but we do not consider this acceptable”.

Deputy chair of the Heath Commission stated that removal and transplantation of the organs especially after sudden deaths of the young people is not positively welcomed in Azerbaijan: “For that reason, NGOs should organize awareness raising activities”.

The permission of the donation of the non-relatives also reflected in the draft law bill.
