11 January 2023
The Bahrain Center for Strategic, International and Energy Studies (Derasat) recently issued an analytical report on the results of a national survey on organ donation in the Kingdom of Bahrain, covering a sample of 1350, with the aim of measuring and evaluating the cultural and societal acceptance about organ donation, the community’s position on this humanitarian effort, and measuring opinions on the establishment of a specialized center for organ transplants and transplantation. The analysts of the statistical data at the center reached several conclusions regarding awareness and familiarity of the Bahraini society with the concept, increased importance of organ donation, and the belief in the need to establish a center for this purpose in order to accelerate the saving of patients’ lives, given supporting documentations of approval of organ donation by donors before they die. Also, some respondents expressed their concern for the health of donors, but half of them supported the principle of organ donation in general.
