Iran ranks first in kidney transplantation in the Middle East and fourth in organ transplantation in the world. But experts and officials at the Annual Organ Transplantation Seminar say more needs to be done before organ donation could become altruistic and widespread.

The Iranian Health Ministry officials say, during the past two decades, advances in medical sciences has led to greater success in transplantation and to increased numbers of patients on waiting lists.

In 1988, a compensated and regulated living-unrelated donor organ transplant program was adopted in Iran. As a result, the number of organ transplants increased, such that in 1999, the waiting list was once eliminated.

Experts also say the transplant community has to adopt new strategies to expand the donor pool and eliminate the waiting lists.

The Annual Organ Transplantation Seminar was held at Tehran's Sina Hospital. The main topics of discussions were: Developing and promoting programs on organ transplantation, bridging the gap between supply and demand, strengthening public awareness and cooperation, coordinating national donor centers, as well as regulating and funding the transplant process to eliminate or alleviate the waiting lists.
