Thai Transplantation Society
Dr. Surazee Prommool

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I, Dr. Surazee Prommool, as the President of Thai Transplantation Society (term of office: 2019-2021), am On behalf of the executive committee of Thai Transplantation Society, we would like to thank you all the members who have been giving us trust since our acitivity management during the term of the previous committee.
Thai Transplantation Society is legally registered in 1988 under the Society Act. Our idea is that the transplantation is the significant advancement in the medical industry. It could provide the end-stage and immedicable patients, namely chronic renal failure and Cirrhosis, with an alternative to enable them to start living their life anew. Currently, the organ-transplantation achievement is increasing gradually due to the growth of surgical technic, the knowledge of immunosuppressive drug, and the progress of disease diagnosis.


Kidney transplant in Thailand is achievable since 1972. Our success follows close on the bone marrow, liver, heart, lung, and heart-lung transplantation. Presently, hospitals throughout the country could provide the transplantation. Kidney transplants constitute the largest number of solid organ transplantations being performed in Thailand. Although the organ transplantation is worthwhile, it is restricted by the organ shortage comparing to the number of waiting lists. The higher shortage of organ donation is because of the public awareness, the lack of knowledge, the religious believe of having incomplete organ after reborn, and the lack of understanding of medical workers. The rumors about purchase and sale of organs also affect the confident of donors and families, giving a reason that the doctor may not put the best effort in medical treatment. There is a word saying that “the organ donation can’t carry on without public trust”. Although, the Ministry of Public Health announces to establish more healthy area that also lead to more transplant center nowadays. Unfortunately, the management is the main problem which need to continue in system development.


Therefore, the regulations to use the organ of dead donors, the selection of waiting list, and the procedures to protect the people from sale and purchase of organs should be implemented fairly in order to encourage the organ-donation trust. This would ensure the public that everyone, either rich or poor, would receive equal opportunity for organ transplantation and that the donors who are in the bad injury would receive the best treatment.
In the name of President and Executive Committee of Thai Transplantation Society, we aim to grow the organ transplantation in Thailand for better effectiveness in terms of academic, research, and service.
