Serbia citizens become organ donors

Serbia could soon get new law on organ transplantation, stipulating that all citizens are donors and that after their death their organs could be taken for transplantation purposes. In practice, however, as in all other countries, the final decision will be on the family.

"Even if person during life had not explicitly rejected to be a donor, the organs shall not be transplanted if the family did not give its consent," said Vesna Rakonjac, director of the Serbian Biomedicine Directorate.

She also says that the Law on organ transplanting has entered the assembly procedure and is now waiting to be put on the agenda.

Changes to the Law on organ transplanting mean transition from the so-called informed consent, which is now applied, to the presumed consent.

According to this model, everyone is a potential donor , expect those who explicitly declare against donating organs in case of brain death. Such a model has been in place in neighboring Croatia which is at the European top in terms of the number of transplants done, since 1998.

A large number of people are still waiting for organ transplants in Serbia.  The biggest problem in this area is the lack of donors, because in Serbia, currently, there are six donors per million inhabitants, unlike the former SFRY countries, which are permanent members of the Euro-transplant organization and which have 25 to 30 in Slovenia, and more than 40 in Croatia.
