The Latin American and Caribbean Transplant Society originated from the merger of the two Transplant Societies that existed in Latin America until 1999: The Latin American Transplant Society, established in 1980, and the Pan American Dialysis and Transplant Society founded in 1987.

The Society was created with the primary mission of unifying the Latin American and Caribbean region for educational, research, and practical purposes, bringing together all professionals who practice any activity related to organ transplantation and contributing to the improvement of research and practice in organ transplantation.
