The Philippines and Organ Donation

In the Philippines, being an organ donor is atypical, and for a country fraught with false notions and superstitions, launching organ donor awareness is easier said than done. Perhaps another contributing factor to Filipino’s apathy on organ donation is their lack of knowledge on the subject and also that information about it is hard to find.

One of the main reasons research show is that Filipino’s don’t know exactly about what they need to do in order to become one. Perhaps the word ‘registration’ to an average Filipino is equivalent to long queue’s, pages and pages of forms to fill out answering questions they don’t understand, in short, a waste of time.

What they don’t know is that the most important way of ‘registering’ to become an organ donor is to talk about it with ones friends and family. In that small way, an individual would already have registered his or her wishes to people whom he knows will carry out what he wants if and when the individual will pass away. It is most advisable as well that a person who has decided to donate his organs when he dies, is to discuss this decision with the person who will have the final say. For example if you were single and you have decided to donate your organs when the time comes, you would communicate your decision to your parents. Or, if you were a husband who has come to such a decision as well, you would tell your wife.

Yes, there are forms to fill out and an organ donor card that can be issued to a person once a decision like this has been made but as was stated earlier, a persons’ talking this kind of choice over with family and friends already ensures that his or her wishes be carried. The forms are merely for formality and also for certain situations where in other people need to know as well. A common example of this is when an individual meets an accident and dies as a result and there is no one available to let the medical people know of the said individuals wishes and by the time the family is able to communicate with the medical people, it is already to late for the organs to be harvested.

In principle, contrary to most peoples’ common notion those only organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys and eyes are what they can donate and can be transplanted. This notion is actually not entirely true as facts said that currently, transplanted human tissues include bone, corneas, skin, heart valves, veins, cartilage and other connective tissues. Tissues such as these can be used to treat patients suffering from congenital defects, blindness, visual impairment, trauma, burns, dental defects, arthritis, cancer, vascular and heart disease. In addition, many heart valves are used to treat children with congenital defects of their own heart valves.

    It’s a shame the government has never thought of the lack of an efficient system to manage this. Imagine the lives that could be saved.

    Of course, it’s the Philippines. Even we can have one, who’s to say it won’t have the same vile corruption that pervades the country?

    Just please take note of the ff. provisions under Republic Act No. 7170 (OThe Organ Donation Act of 1991):

    xxx SEC. 3. Person Who May Execute Legacy. – Any individual, at least eighteen (!8) years of age and of sound mind ,may give by way of legacy, to take effect after his death, all or part of his body for any purpose specified in Section 6 hereof.

    xxx

    SEC. 8. Manner of Executing a Legacy.-
    (a) Legacy of all or part of the human body under Section 3 hereof maybe made by will. The legacy becomes effective upon the death of the testator without waiting for probate of the will. If the will is not probated , or it is a declared invalid for testamentary purposes, to the extent that it was executed in good health, is nevertheless valid and effective.

    (b) A legacy of all part of the human body under Section 3 hereof may also be made in any document other than the will. The legacy becomes effective upon the death of the testator and shall be respected by and binding upon his executor or administrator, heirs, assign, successors in interest and all members of the family. The document, which maybe a card or any paper designed to be carried on a person, must be signed by the testator in the presence of two witnesses who must signed the document in his presence. If the testator cannot sign, the documents may be signed for him at his direction and in his presence, in the presence of two witnesses who must, likewise, sign the document in the presence of the testator. Delivery of the document of legacy during the testator’s lifetime is not necessary to make the legacy valid.

    (c) The legacy may be made to specified the legatee or without specifying the legatee. If the legacy is made to specified a legatee who is not available at the time and place of the testator’s death, the attending physician or surgeon, in the absence of any expressed indication that the testator desired otherwise, may accept the legacy as legatee. If the legacy does not specify a legatee, the legacy may be accepted by the attending physician or surgeon as legatee upon or following the testator’s death. The physician may become a legatee under this subsection shall not participate in the procedures for removing or transplanting a part or parts of the body as decedent.

    (d) The testator may designate in his will, card or other document, the surgeon or physician who will carry out the appropriate procedures. In the absence of the designation, or if the designee is not available, the legatee or other persons authorized to accept the legacy may authorized any surgeon or physician for the purpose.

    This article is not supported by hard evidences. You must not be misled. There are thousands of donors at the Philippines. Organ Donation is very common, and Organ Donor Card is available to most people.

    The problem is that organ selling, not organ donation is rampant in the country. Kidneys costs around Php 200,000.00 each. Other organs have their own prices too.

    Yes there are a few organ donation centers in the country, but hundreds exists, unregistered. Mostly private surgeons and physicians.

    Hi. I’ve decided to become an organ donor. I want to donate anything that can be useful to others. I also want to know if there’s a way for me to choose whoever the beneficiary is. Please email me at realnapsterjeff@yahoo.com for details.

    Hi,

    I would like also to donate all possible organs I have that can be useful to others. Please let me know how to register myself, I wrote a letter in pocket telling that if i’ll die or in vegetable state I am willing to donate all the organs I have. But I wanted to make it sure that it’ll be followed. Please help me on this. My email is sherk_wing20@yahoo.com.

    Thanks,

    Sherwin

    I would like to support the organ donation program, and would like to become a donor myself. I am crafting a local legislation to promote the said program in the City of Naga in Bicol by establishing a mechanism by which to institutionalize a mandated choice to answer the question “do you want to be an organ donor?”, prior to issuance of Marriage License by out LCRO and/or of Driver’s License by LTO District Office in the city. I’ll submit the draft ordinance to the Sanggunian very soon. Suggestions and comments are welcome. thanks.
