Organ Donation Awareness Needed in Jalisco

Leticia Arana - Vallarta Vive

September 7, 2012

Speakers and organizers of the VIII State Health Week Conference believe that citizens of Jalisco are not doing their part in the donation of organs due to the lack of social promotion and government support.

The conference included a new program called "Gift for Life," which will be offered to the citizenship in general.

The Administrative Director of the Congress, Carlos Enrique Trejo Orozco, argues that in the State of Jalisco, nearly four thousand people are on the waiting list for an organ and this number constantly increases due to the lack of health related prevention measures.

Orozco indicates that the donation of organs is almost non-existent in our culture and that is a product of inadequate public policy, conscience and awareness.

"Unfortunately, the budget is a scarce resource and there is much struggle between the various secretariats to see who stays within budget. Unfortunately, the considerations of health as it regards to the culture of donations is replaced by those favoring other budget expenditures, such as public security."

Orozco stresses the importance of collaborating in the promotion of organ donation and thus giving life to others.
