Doctor in the House: A Critical Shortage of Organ Donors - And Organ Transplants

Organ donation offers a new lease on life for recipients of organ transplants. But in Malaysia, we have a critical shortage of organ donors and thus low transplantation rates. Dr Mohamad Zaimi Abdul Wahab, a transplant nephrologist from Hospital Kuala Lumpur and Vice President of the Malaysian Society of Transplantation joins us to dive into the challenges in raising organ donation and transplant rates in Malaysia and how a programme targeted at university students aims to change this.
