It is partly because of this unwillingness to donate that many people in Latin America spend protracted periods on waiting lists for organ transplants. In Argentina, for example, more than 3,500 patients (around 36.7 percent of those on donation waiting lists) have been waiting for three or more years to receive a needed organ as of July 2021. While the majority of those on waiting lists for organ transplants in the country were either middle-aged or elderly, 1,265 of the 9,614 patients were under the age of 30.
