In Brazil, transplants are coordinated by the Unified Health System (SUS), under the responsibility of the National Transplant System (SNT), which controls and monitors transplants of organs, tissues and parts of the human body.
When a patient is referred for a solid organ transplant, he or she is placed on a single, periodically updated list so that donated organs are allocated to recipients as needed and matched.
Active search for potential donors
The hospital also has the Comissão Intra-hospitalar de Transplantes [Intra-Hospital Transplant Commission] (CIHT), which works in the active search for potential organ donors, offering support to families and working in the education of patients and families, clarifying doubts about the donation process.
Faced with such a complex and specialized treatment, Hospital 9 de Julho stands out for offering quality care, with high-tech equipment and complete infrastructure.
