Introduction
Before 1997, there had been only one documented case of successful organ donation in India. Lalitha Raghuram has paved the way for a new system that manages organ donation in India and delivers them to the last stage organ failure patients most in need. Over the last 13 years, she has created a chain of responsibility in which trained doctors, nurses, transplant coordinators, counselors and social workers play clearly defined, but complementary roles to enable organ transplant in a safe and sensitive way.
