Jakarta (ANTARA) – Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin said the organ transplant process in Indonesia has become easier thanks to the Health Law passed by the DPR.

“With this regulation, there is an opportunity to carry out organ transplants in Indonesia,” he said in his statement in Jakarta, Sunday.

He revealed that many Indonesians are sick and have to undergo organ transplants, but this service cannot be done domestically.

Therefore, the Ministry of Health has appointed 17 government hospitals to carry out kidney, cornea and other organ transplant services.

“The law (related to health) has been improved, so the organ transplant process has become easier,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health is collaborating with various parties, including religious organizations, to educate the public about organ transplantation.

According to Sumadi, collaboration with religious organizations is important so that understanding about organ donation gets support from the community.

Currently, the medicines needed for organ transplants in Indonesia are not yet complete. Therefore, the Ministry asked the Cipto Mangunkusumo National Hospital (RSCM) to support the provision of this drug.

“We have determined 17 hospitals that can carry out organ transplants, from organ removal to organ replacement,” said Sumadi.

Meanwhile, former Chairman of the Regional Representative Council (DPD) for the 2017-2019 period, Oesman Sapta Odang, who is a kidney transplant patient, said that his party plans to carry out widespread transplants.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he decided to undergo the process at RSCM, and received a kidney donor from one of his family members. The operation was carried out successfully.

Odang said that Indonesia has many internal organ specialist doctors who are no less than specialist doctors abroad.
