The state health department plans to soon make it compulsory for all private and public hospitals to declare brain deaths. This would provide a boost to cadaver organ donation in Kolkata which has seen just seven cadaver transplants since 2012, of which five were last year. Once an awareness is created through NGOs and other organizations who are involved in this to spread awareness through word of mouth, a change could be seen. Even if 5% agree, there would be enough organs to meet at least half the requirement.
