Is it Legal to Donate Kidney in Pakistan as Per Law

Notwithstanding anything contained in any other law for the time being in force, a living donor who is not less than eighteen years of age, may, during his lifetime, voluntarily donate any organ or tissue of his body to any other living person genetically and legally related, who is a close blood relative. The “dead-donor rule” requires patients to be declared dead before the removal of life-sustaining organs for transplantation. The concept of brain death was developed, in part, to allow patients with devastating neurologic injury to be declared dead before the occurrence of cardiopulmonary arrest.

What are the Three Types of Transplantation
Autologous transplants use your own blood cells or bone marrow. Allogeneic transplants use a donor’s blood cells or bone marrow. A syngeneic allogeneic transplant uses cells or bone marrow from the person’s identical twin.
