    What is Organ donation

    Organ donation is the process of removing tissues or organs from a live, or recently dead, person to be used in another.

    People of all ages can become donors.

    Some organs can be donated by a living person

    Almost all organs can be donated by someone dead but this has to reach the recipient within a few hours after the donor's death.

    In case of live donation the donor should give his consent .

    In case of cadaver donation, relatives need to provide consent.

    Two voluntary systems include
