Need of awareness campaigns for skin donations
Like any other organ, skin needs to be pledged for donation by a living person or donated by the family after one’s death. In Pune, the sole skin bank at Surya Hospital has few takers and four years since its establishment, there have been only 73 cadaveric skin donors! “Initially, there was a good response when we set up the skin bank facility. But now, there is very little awareness among citizens that even skin can be donated after one’s death,” said Dr Jaisingh Shinde, one of the managing trustees at Surya hospital.
