Organ Transplantation – What is happening?

Standard

Another successful organ transplant has taken place, again in the high flying corporate hospital in Chennai (India) which seems to be the only place where this is happening.  (Reported on 31st October 2015). This time it is a heart transplant for a Russian girl. On the one hand it makes one happy that a young girl got a new lease of life. But on the other, the fact that all these highly publicised operations involve only a handful of corporate hospitals is what makes one uncomfortable in this highly commercialized world. I do strongly feel that education and healthcare should not be in private hands.
