MOHAN Foundation, a leading NGO in organ donation has compiled the "Funding for Dialysis and Transplants: A Comprehensive Compendium". This resource offers comprehensive information on financial assistance available for organ transplants in India. The compendium has received research support from NATCO (Network and Alliance of Transplant Coordinators) and financial backing from Milaap and the SBI Foundation.


Organ transplant costs are exorbitant, and a huge number of organ failure patients are not benefiting from this life-saving procedure as they are ill-equipped to bear the financial burden of the transplant and subsequent follow-ups. Having said that, the Indian government, at both the central and state levels, has recognized the importance of providing financial assistance and support for poor individuals in need of organ transplants. In addition, there are many NGOs and crowdfunding platforms supporting transplants for poor patients.


The compendium is an attempt to consolidate all information relevant to these schemes and other forms of financial support so that it can be used as a reference tool. This is the first ready record in India where economically disadvantaged patients can receive information about various means of funding for transplants.
