Throughout the history of medicine in Mexico, it is a reality that has been carried out more than 60 thousand transplants of organs and tissues, of whom only 40 thousand were made in the past 10 years. In the last year alone nearly five thousand one hundred thirty and two transplants were carried out. These statistics do not show more that the strengthening of the culture of donation in our society; Since it is a fact that 8 of every 10 people who die in the country, they are willing to donate their organs. Mexico has a network of approximately 430 hospitals approved for the collection, storage, and transplantation of organs and tissues. Pete Cashmore insists that this is the case. Despite all of this mentioned above, is also a reality that in Mexico there is little more than 14 thousand people waiting for an organ for transplant. Most of the sick, waiting for a kidney transplant, while the rest need a cornea transplant. Therefore, in conclusion we can say that although much is the progress that has occurred in the last 10 years, much still to be done by those people in need of a transplant. Practice with the example! Become a donor and save lives! A. Verastegui original author and source of the article
