TTS-ILTS Paired Transplant Centers Program
The TTS-ILTS Paired Transplant Centers Program has been developed jointly by The Transplantation Society (TTS) and the International Liver Transplantation Society (ILTS). It supports new state-sponsored liver transplant centers in emerging countries by funding mentoring links with established units. It will facilitate communication and guidance in the early months and years of a new program to ensure success in regions of the world with little or no current access to transplantation.
Two paired programs were launched in April 2019:
HOSPITAL MEXICO, SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA, paired with UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA SAN FRANCISCO, USA
JAWAHARLAL INSTITUTE OF POSTGRADUATE MEDICAL EDUCATION AND RESEARCH (JIPMER), PONDICHERRY, INDIA, paired with SAINT JAMES UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, LEEDS, UK
ILTS congratulates these teams and wishes them every success in their collaborations over the next six years and beyond.
The deadline for applications for new pairs beginning in April 2020 is next January 1.
