Qatar aims to double number of organ donors to 100,000 by year end
In a new push, the Qatar Organ Donation Center (Hiba) at Hamad Medical Corp. (HMC) has launched a campaign to double its donor registry to 100,000 people by the end of this year.
There are currently 43,000 people on Qatar’s organ donor registry, which has been growing since the registry first started in 2012 with just 2,000 signatories and received a big boost in 2013 when then-first lady Sheikha Moza bint Nasser registered as a donor.
