MOHAN Foundation participated in the 13th Congress of the International Society for Organ Donation and Procurement (ISODP) at Seoul, South Korea from October 17-20, 2015. The Congress was titled “From the end, to the start”. Dr Sunil Shroff (Managing Trustee) and Ms. Pallavi Kumar (Executive Director, NCR) represented the Foundation. The Congress was attended by over 400 delegates from across 40 countries.
Dr Sunil Shroff was invited to present in a Round Table discussion in which he shared perspectives from India on deceased organ donation. The other countries represented in the discussion were China, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and Thailand. Dr Shroff presented the current status of deceased organ donation in India, the government initiatives, state wise progress on donations and some of the main challenges to the success of the program.
Ms. Pallavi Kumar made a presentation under the poster session on Education and Communication on a new project launched by the Foundation called “Angels of Change – Volunteers for Organ Donation.” Under this initiative, select student volunteers from schools and colleges are taken through a customised training module to enable them to undertake awareness initiatives on organ donation amongst various audiences. The objective of this program is to engage the student volunteers – duly sensitised and trained as agents of change – and make them efficient enough to conduct public awareness on organ donation.
