Less than two per cent of patients on a kidney waiting list had been given transplants, it was revealed yesterday. Only 14 of 950 patients had received kidneys up until May this year, while only five of 100 patients had received livers. Three of 20 needing heart and lungs and 42 of 200 needing corneas had been treated. The figures were revealed as a push to increase organ donations was launched by the Hospital Authority and Hong Kong Red Cross. Many patients - especially those waiting for liver transplants - die before organs become available. The latest campaign will attempt to overcome resistance to removing body parts after a relative's death by urging people to carry organ donor cards, available through hospitals and the Red Cross. The one million blood donors would be targeted first in the latest campaign, as they were surveyed and found to be receptive to the idea of organ donation. Dr Philip Li Kam-tao, a consultant physician at the Prince of Wales Hospital, urged potential donors to tell family members they wanted to give organs. 'Our survey found that the major cause of objection is the family members' uncertainty towards the deceased's decision,' he said.
