The TTS-ILTS Paired Transplant Centers Program is a collaboration between The Transplantation Society (TTS) and the International Liver Transplantation Society (ILTS) supporting new liver transplant programs in emerging economies.

Who:

An experienced transplant center in the developed world is paired with an emerging transplant center to facilitate vital multidisciplinary training and an exchange of knowledge and expertise.

Why:

The project aims to benefit both centers. The supporting center (SC) is involved in global health, and promotes ethical and competent transplantation in regions of the world with limited or no current access to transplantation. The emerging center (EC), connects with a multidisciplinary team of experts in transplantation from a world-leading center.

Steps:

Progressive steps associated with increasing funding as the partnership between the EC and SC grows.

Goal:

The ultimate goal is for Level 3 centers to graduate and become true local centers of excellence for regional training and support.

Program Schedule:

  • Deadline to Apply: January 1st 2021
