About Jeevandan

The Government has cleared a new comprehensive scheme "Jeevandan" proposed by the Cadaver Transplantation Advisory Committee (CTAC) to give a fillip to organ transplantation.

The Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) has been designated as the Appropriate Authority for Cadaver Transplantation (AACT).

A large number of patients suffering from irreversible organ ailments involving heart, liver, pancreas and kidney could lead a healthy life if they had the opportunity to undergo transplant surgery.
