DTI Foundation visited Goan (India) in July 2017 within the framework of the Kidney Update 2017, organised by the Indian Medical Association. Our executive director of DTI Foundation Dr. María Paula Gomez has participated in the conference in order to help to set up the organ donation and transplant services in every tertiary care hospital in the State. Taking inspiration from Spain, the aim of the event has been promoting the idea of an effective organ donation and transplant system.
Furthermore the Embassy of Spain in New Delhi, in association with the National Organ & Tissue Transplant Organization and Foundation DTI Foundation, has hosted the 1st Indian-Spain Working Meeting on “Organ Procurement and Management Best Practices” in which Dr. Martí Manyalich has presented the leading practice in organ donation in Spain. This event has served to create a platform to exchange practices amongst national stakeholders in India about the organ donation practice and procurement model.
DTI Foundation also has participated in a conference about ‘Organ donation and transplantation in children’, organized by Fortis Organ Retrieval & Transplant (FORT) and Department of Paediatrics at Fortis Memorial Research Institute Gurugram, that took place the 29th of July in New Delhi.
