AbstractThis article explores the social and cultural issues surrounding the donation of organs for transplantation. With the increasing shortage of suitable organs, the author suggests that healthcare professionals should be more aware of such issues when discussing transplantation with potential donors or their families and highlights the need for a national information campaign.
