The New Idea
Adriana is increasing the number of organ donations in Mexico and creating awareness for a culture of organ donation. Adriana’s innovative work in her role as a catalyst has made it possible for government agencies, companies, and social organizations to work together to increase organ donations in Mexico. She has created a working model that is mutually beneficial to government and society; government expands its health services, and society receives greater health services and infrastructure to promote organ donation.
