UAE doctors want kidney transplants law implemented soon

by | TOP STORIES

Doctors are hoping that a law allowing transplants of organs from dead people will be implemented next month in the UAE.

The law was issued last year by the president, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa, but the definition of a brain dead person still needs to be agreed upon.

This law will benefit kidney failure patients that are candidates for transplants.

“We will have a group of patients ready should an organ be available,” said Dr Nick Richards, chief executive and chief medical officer of Seha’s dialysis services.

The first and only kidney transplant from a deceased donor in the UAE was done in 2013 from a Saudi donor to a 23-year-old woman from Abu Dhabi performed at SEHA’s Sheikh Khalifa Medical City.

Some Emiratis are travelling abroad for illegal kidney transplants.

There is a large black market for illegal kidney trade and many countries now do it as a business,” Naheel Suwan, chairwoman of the Kidney Patient Network said as quoted by The National.

Around 1,100 people are on dialysis in Abu Dhabi and 30 to 40 transplants are carried out a year at Sheikh Khalifa Medical City.

Dr. Muhammad Badar Zaman, the head of the transplantation service at SKMC says that the cost of a transplant is significantly cheaper compared to the cost of undergoing dialysis.
