The Health Ministry is looking into ways to increase the number of organ donors to use harvested organs in a wider scale, particularly for kidney transplant.

Minister, Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam said this was because hospitals were not getting sufficient organs suitable for transplant to increase the number of people who could benefit.

He said most on the organ transplant waiting list were in need of kidneys but only a fraction had pledged to donate in the country.

"Unfortunately, we are not getting enough suitable organs for transplant. We need to increase so those who are waiting can benefit from this.

"This is something we are trying to improve," he said.
