Organ donation is known as the process of donating organs by a deceased or live donor to the person suffering from organ failure.


Organ donation is a legal process carried out with the consent of the donor or their kin. The organs received after donation used in different transplantations such as liver, kidney, heart, lungs, intestines, pancreas, bones, corneas, skin and born marrow transplantation. According to the survey held in 2017, Spain has the highest donor rate (46.9 per million) in the world followed by Portugal (34.0 per million), Belgium (33.6 per million), Croatia (33.0 per million) and United States (32.0 per million).
