AST Journal Club on Inequities in Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation for SOGI-diverse Populations

Join us for an AST Journal Club on:
"Inequities in organ and tissue donation and transplantation for sexual orientation and gender identity diverse people: A scoping review" (Am J Transplant. 2023 Jun;23(6):707-726. doi: 10.1016/j.ajt.2023.03.016. Epub 2023 Mar 29.)

In this article:
Sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI)-diverse populations experience discrimination in organ and tissue donation and transplantation (OTDT) systems globally. [The authors] assembled a multidisciplinary group of clinical experts as well as SOGI-diverse patient and public partners and conducted a scoping review including citations on the experiences of SOGI-diverse persons in OTDT systems globally to identify and explore the inequities that exist with regards to living and deceased OTDT... [The authors] identified numerous harms and inequities for SOGI-diverse populations in OTDT systems..., summarized recommendations for the promotion of equity for SOGI-diverse populations and identified gaps that can serve as targets for action moving forward.
