Organ transplantation districts being redrawn to correct geographic disparity
from By Chelsea Adams
The United Network for Organ Sharing has proposed changes to the United States' transplant system in an attempt to reduce the geographic disparity that makes it more difficult to get liver transplants in some areas of the country. At present, organs are shared among 11 districts in the nation. The proposal seeks to reduce the number of districts to eight districts with redrawn borders. Changing the districts' boundaries would create a better ratio of available livers to waiting recipients.
