How Spain became the world leader in organ transplants
Spain has a pioneering system that has made it the world leader in organ transplants for the past 25 years.

Each hospital has a transplant coordinator, usually a doctor or nurse who specialises in intensive care, charged with identifying patients at risk of a heart attack or brain death.
In both situations kidneys, livers, lungs, pancreas and sometimes even the heart can still work and can be transplanted. Organ donations are quickly reported to the ONT which searches for the best match from its organ waiting list. If the patient is far away, a cooler with the organ is sent by plane inside the cockpit with the pilot. The operation is free under Spain's public health system, anonymous and available only to residents of the country to avoid organ trafficking.
