Message by Administrator HOTA

4th September 2007 is a milestone in the history of Pakistan. Years back an Ordinance titled, ?Transplantation of Human Organs and Tissues Ordinance 2007? was promulgated. Majority of the people of this country welcomed this move, which brought Pakistan into a comity of nations where human dignity is prized and valued.

The Government of Pakistan and Human Organ Transplant Authority (HOTA) are committed to bring to an end the illegal trade and restore the dignity of human life. I do not say this, but figures speak for themselves. In 2006 it was reported that approximately 2000 kidneys transplants were performed, out of which 1500 were foreigners. Now no foreigner is being provided kidney from our poor country men.

Human Organs Transplant Authority (HOTA) is primarily working to regulate the authority laws for the welfare and facilitating with the health care approaches mainly involving the human organ transplantations in Private/Public sector across Pakistan. The young energetic team of HOTA works with Great Spirit and enthusiasm from dawn to dusk to promote the healthcare facilities and eliminate the entire bias elements.

We are working to help establishing/uplift the Public Health Transplant center in Pakistan so that cost effective, safe and up-to date transplant procedures can be delivered to the patients.

We will be arranging seminars, walks, meetings and awareness campaigns to promote and encourage the culture of legal organ donation in Pakistan.

We warmly welcome all the hospitals and Transplant Units throughout Pakistan for Facilitation/Guidance regarding Transplantation of human organs to improve the general health condition of patients and minimize the morbidity and mortality rate across Pakistan.
