Human organs are the most valuable gifts of life. Until today, through organ transplantation, thousands of lives have been saved and many more blessed with hope and happiness through a better quality of living. However, rapid developments in transplant technology will be meaningless if supply of the needed organs remains scarce and organ transplantation procedures cannot take place accordingly. This global problem of organ shortage is also faced by Malaysia. Despite campaigns and initiatives introduced by the Malaysian authorities, the problem remains unresolved and the situation is worsening. Malaysia is reported to have less than one donor for every one thousand of the population (Lela Yasmin Mansor, 2007). However, statistics from the National Transplant Registry Malaysia confirm a constant, steady increase in the number of registered potential donors each year. This suggests that there are certain factors preventing potential donors from becoming actual donors. Therefore, this book will focus on the organ shortage crisis in Malaysia, highlight underlying factors causing it, while scrutinising legal and social factors resulting to relatively small actual donations eventually taking place, despite the rising number of potential donors registering each year. The book elaborates on practical solutions to help solve this crisis, particularly by utilising brain-dead patients from serious road traffic accidents as a potential source of cadaveric organs.
