The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a circular emphasizing the importance of organ donation and encouraging participation in the upcoming ‘Indian Organ Donation Day’ initiatives.

‘Angdaan Mahotsav’ – Indian Organ Donation Day

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of India, recognizing the critical need for organ donations in the country, is set to observe the India Organ Donation Day on August 3rd, 2023.

The significance of the ‘Angdaan Mahotsav’ – Indian Organ Donation Day initiative stems from the fact that a single organ donor has the potential to rescue as many as eight lives. Despite this fact, a significant disparity exists between the demand for organ transplants and the available organ donors.

H2: The Government’s Initiative to Enhance Organ Donation

To combat this discrepancy and promote organ donation, the Indian Government has set up the National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organization (NOTTO).

This apex body, along with similar organizations at the regional and state level, is responsible for organizing and overseeing organ procurement and distribution in the country. Additionally, it maintains a national registry of donors and recipients, ensuring a systematic approach to organ and tissue transplants.

The ‘Angdaan Mahotsav’ – Indian Organ Donation campaign’s purpose extends to debunking myths and misconceptions around organ donation and encouraging citizens to pledge to donate organs and tissues post-death.

This year, the Angdaan campaign takes the form of ‘Angdaan Mahotsav,’ planned to coincide with the Azaadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, marking the 75th year of India’s independence.

The selected date, August 3rd, is significant, as it also commemorates the first deceased donor organ transplant and the first heart transplant carried out in the country following the implementation of the ‘Transplantation of Human Organs Act’ on July 8th, 1994.

The ‘Angdaan Mahotsav’ Campaign’s Objectives

The ‘Angdaan Mahotsav’ campaign for 2023 seeks to:

  • Encourage healthy lifestyles & wellness to lower the demand for organ transplantation.
  • Educate people about brain stem death, deceased organ donation & control illegal organ transplantation practices.
  • Dispel myths and misconceptions around organ donation & transplantation.
  • Boost the identification and declaration of brain stem death cases by hospitals.

Role of Schools in the ‘Angdaan Mahotsav’ Campaign

In connection with the above, schools across the nation are urged to actively participate in the following ways:

  1. Promote the registration of pledges for organ and tissue donation on the MyGov portal.
  2. Spread awareness among students about organ donation.
  3. Organize various events centred around organ and tissue donation, like poster competitions, slogan contests, and quizzes.
