Government announces organ transplant system overhaul plan

Season 2023 Episode 81 | 6m 15s

The Biden administration announced plans to overhaul the network that has run the nation’s organ transplant system for nearly four decades. The United Network for Organ Sharing has faced criticism for inadequately managing the process. The proposal would open up bidding for other organizations to take over the network to shorten wait times. Amna Nawaz discussed the latest with Dr. Jayme Locke.
