After a year-long battle, highlighted in a series of reports by DNA, the Rajasthan government has finally issued a no-objection certificate for the country’s first international kidney transplant procedure. The surgery will be conducted at Mumbai’s Hinduja and BSES MG hospitals.
It is for the first time that residents of two countries — India and Kenya — are sharing organs to save lives. Both the families were stationed in Jaipur for the past week.
DNA on March 14, in its report titled ‘Unending wait for kidney, and life’, had mentioned how the country’s laws were posing a hurdle to India’s first international organ swap surgery.
