Singapore’s newest disease centre: Hope for patients needing organ transplants?

In June 2018, the World Health Organization (WHO) enjoined governments all over the world to exert more effort in stopping “thousands of organs” being trafficked each year. Will the recently launched disease centre in Singapore prompt people to secure much needed organ transplants in legitimate ways?
SingHealth and Duke-NUS Medical School have set up a new disease centre to bring together all of its transplant capabilities, such as research and education, in a move to advance transplant care and increase legal access to organs. With this undertaking, the SingHealth and Duke-NUS Transplant Centre have merged and strengthened all of the medical group’s solid organ, tissue and cellular transplantation services.
