The Health Ministry will reorganize the local transplant activity as part of an EU-funded project worth over EUR 15.6 million.
The project covers the development of a National Transplant Registry, the drafting of a Transplant Code, the updating of the guides and protocols in this area, and simplifying the transplant-related legislation. It is set to last 36 months.
The National Transplant Registry will be developed as an integrated IT system collecting personal and medical data of potential donors, of brain-dead donors, of patients who need to receive a transplant, and of those who underwent a transplant procedure.
The transplant protocols and guides are to be updated for every type of activity (testing, coordination, transport, harvesting, post-transplant evaluation, storage) and for every type of transplant (kidney, liver, heart, cornea, bone-tendon, lung, pancreas, stem cells).
