The Global Observatory on Donation and Transplantation (a division of the World Health Organization, WHO) in 2009 reported that an estimated 104,650 transplants were performed in 89 countries (72,100 kidney, 21,175 liver, 5405 heart, 3650 lung, 2320 pancreas). This number represents an increase of 4% since 2008 but less than 10% of the global need.
