Abstract

Albania is a young Democracy emerging from under 40 yr of dictatorship. During this era Albanians were subjected to isolation, purges, shortages, repression of civil, political and religious rights. This resulted in the least developed healthcare system in Europe. After the mid 90s, there have been relentless attempts to modernize Albania. Recently an international medical team collaborated with an Albanian team of physicians to perform the first successful renal transplant. With continued cooperation and perseverance developing a transplant program in Albania is within reach.
