Origins

   
 
  It has been over 15 years since the “Human Organ Transplantation Act” was signed into law in 1987. Through the efforts of the domestic medical community there have been advances made to the techniques of organ transplantation, resulting in safer operations and improved outcomes. The shortage of organ donors however means that for the over 7000 people each year awaiting an organ transplant, only 150 donors are found, or an organ donation of match rate of 0.00066%. This means that tragically many patients pass away due to organ failure before the needed organ becomes available. At the same time, there is no domestic registration and sharing system for patients awaiting organ donation. This means that there exists no cooperation between the donor and the
recipient, so precious donated organs are sometimes wasted. After referring to the Western nations' organ donation sharing operations, it was decided that the processes for organ procurement, organ donation, organ transplantation and organ matching should be standardized and computerized. The Executive Yuan Department of Health therefore contributed to the founding of the “Taiwan Organ Registry and Sharing Center ” to serve as a bridge between the donors, recipients, organ procurement hospitals and organ transplantation hospitals. In accordance with the amendment to Article 10, Paragraph 1, Subparagraph 2 of the “Human Organ Transplantation Act” published by the Executive Yuan Department of Health in January 2003, the Department of Health established in June 2002 the “Taiwan Organ Registry and Sharing Center ” to assist the government with registering organ donations and transplantations, building of database and related activities. The Center is also dedicated to improving the rates of organ donation and transplantation success in Taiwan, building a fair, open and transparent sharing system, and shortening the organ transplantation waiting times for patients in order to improve the effective usage of donated organs.

From the Chairman

 
  Our Registry Center is founded on the ideal of "Organ donations are a gift of life". We hope that the highest expression of love through selfless sacrifice can be used to help sustain human life. We also work to promote organ transplantation in partnership with the laws such as the "Human Organ Transplantation Act" intended to help those who are in need. To better promote human organ transplantation, restore the function of bodily organs and save lives, on June 19 1987 the "Human Organ Transplantation Act" was promulgated. After many discussions, amendments were announced in July 2002 that improved regulations governing human organ transplantation. These included allowing live liver transplants from blood relatives that expanded the options for legal organ transplants. This law together with medical science has now brought a ray of hope to many lives whose health is at risk. In the revised law, the act of organ donation must be without consideration, and to prevent traffic in organs, live organ donors may only donate to a designated relative; for relatives of a deceased organ donor, the Department of Health is also considering revisions such as funeral subsidies. These are all intended to reinforce the law's spirit of altruism, compassion, selflessness and sacrifice as well as to reduce conflicts of interest. Through these efforts, "Good Samaritan" gifts of life can be achieved using modern medical science.

Chief Executive Officer(Yang-jen Chiang)

With advances in medial sciences, Taiwan 's organ donation medical expertise has achieved significant successes. The most critical issue today however is still the shortage of organ donors. Compared to developed nations, Taiwan 's organ donation and procurement operations are still in its early beginnings. Further effort is required to catch up to the developed world. If organ procurement can be carried out fully, countless lives can be saved along with massive medical costs. Therefore apart from the partnership between law and medicine, our Center also works hard to promote organ donation. In the future we will put great emphasis on the training of procurement personnel, training of procurement teaching cadre and work with charitable organizations to popularize the ideals of organ donation. We hope that these will serve to light a beacon of selfless love for future progress in organ donations and transplantations. Our Center's future development will continue to rely on the experts in transplantation medicine, related laws, medical ethics, sociology, mental sciences, psychology as well as charitable organizations, corporations and the general public. Only with all of their support can this great endeavor succeed.
