Indicators on the organ donation have improved in some countries in southeast Asia since the ODISSeA biomedical postgraduate degree (Organ Donation Innovate Strategies in Southeast Asia) appeared in 2020. This academic program, led by the University of Barcelona, aims to promote the high-specialization training in organ donation and it is aimed at health professionals in these geographical areas.

The ODISSeA project is one of the initiatives to improve the health culture in the field of donation and transplantation worldwide. It is promoted by Martí Manyalich, lecturer at the Faculty of Medicine and Health of the UB, transplantation advisor at Hospital Clínic de Barcelona and president of the DTI Foundation – Donation & Transplantation Institute, in the Barcelona Science Park.

Despite the challenges that resulted from COVID-19, this cofounded project by the EU Erasmus+ project and which started on January 7, 2020, has contributed to the training of more than three hundred experts from eight universities from Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines and Thailand. With a methodology combined with several educational strategies (online modules, face-to-face seminars and webinars, etc.), participants improve their professional skills, which are decisive to put knowledge from the academic environment in practice and improve the health culture regarding donation in southeast Asia.
