Public Health: Will You Use MySejahtera To Pledge Your Organs?

Malaysia’s organ donation rate is among the lowest in the world, with only 2.84 transplant procedures carried out per one million population in 2021. Recently, the Minister of Health Khairy Jamaluddin announced that organ donation registration can now be made through MySejahtera, which is believed to help encourage more donors to pledge. Consultant urologist Dr Vijayan Manogran and consultant nephrologist Dr Sunita Bavanandan join Azrul Mohd Khalib from the Galen Centre for Health & Social Policy, to explore the barriers to organ donation in Malaysia, and why the need is more urgent than ever, considering the burden of diseases that require organ transplants.
