Organ donation is when a person allows healthy transplantable organs and tissues to be removed, either after death or while the donor is alive, and transplanted into a patient in need.
Organ transplantation is the best treatment for a patient suffering from chronic organ failure. Transplantation allows the patient to lead a normal life.
The Lebanese organ procurement system is based on early donor detection and referral, brain death diagnosis and aggressive management. It is based on a national organ procurement network with a central office (NOD-LB).
