Pham Minh Chinh, Prime Minister, Registers as Organ Donor

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh recently announced a significant decision to donate tissues and organs after death or brain death. During a launch event held at Viet Duc Hospital in Hanoi on May 19, the Prime Minister introduced a program called “Register to donate tissues and organs – Giving is forever” in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and other organizations to promote organ donation. The Chairman of the association campaigning for tissue, organ, and organ donation for Vietnamese people, Nguyen Thi Kim Tien, presented the Prime Minister with a registration card for tissue and organ donation.

The Prime Minister highlighted the importance of organ and tissue donation as a valuable gift that can save lives. Vietnam has been successful in performing thousands of organ transplants thanks to the generosity and kindness of donors. Despite being behind other countries in organ transplant technology, Vietnam has made remarkable progress and now has a high survival rate after organ transplantation at a lower cost.

The Prime Minister recognized the efforts of Vietnamese doctors in the field of organ transplantation and tissue donation but emphasized that there is still a gap between demand for organ transplants and availability. He urged all adult Vietnamese citizens to consider registering for organ donation regardless of their background or beliefs. The Prime Minister proposed establishing a day to honor and promote organ donation registration, suggesting Uncle Ho’s birthday on May 19 as Vietnam’s Organ and Tissue Donation Day.

Currently, more than 86,000 people are already registered to donate tissues and organs after death in Vietnam. The Prime Minister commended growing awareness and kindness towards organ donations but acknowledged limitations in organ transplant mechanisms, policies, medical staff availability in the field, and comprehensive propaganda efforts required. The Prime Minister emphasized that one person’s decision to donate organs after death could save many lives and encouraged increased participation in organ donations to meet growing demand.

In conclusion, Pham Minh Chinh’s decision is an admirable step towards promoting life-saving efforts through tissue and organ donations after death or brain death. With ongoing promotion through initiatives like this program launched by him along with others like Nguyen Thi Kim Tien’s association campaigning for tissue, organ &amp"#x27A2;"""δ"""υ"""Register to Donate Tissues And Organs – Giving Is Forever" – Vietnam may see further growth in awareness about this vital cause while bridging gaps between supply & demand.
