Taipei, May 28 (CNA) A microfilm which was posted online recently by
National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH) to promote organ donation has been well received, drawing nearly 70,000 likes on the hospital’s Facebook page.
The microfilm was the idea of Kuo Ting-chun (郭廷均), a physician in the hospital’s Department of Traumatology, and an NTUH promotional team for organ donation.
Kuo said that while organ donation has gained wide acceptance in Taiwan, particularly among young people, most people in the country still lack knowledge about the subject. Some people even have the misconception that if they sign an organ donor card, they would not be given medical treatment at a hospital if they fell ill. [FULL STORY]
