Australians Encouraged to Discuss Organ Donation During DonateLife Week

DonateLife Week, Sunday 29 July - Sunday 5 August 2018
Donate Strength. Donate Adventure. Donate Love. DonateLife.

Make your decision count. Register as an organ and tissue donor.

This DonateLife Week, Australians are being urged to give hope to those whose lives depend on an organ transplant by joining the Australian Organ Donor Register online and letting family members know your wishes to be a donor.

Registration is quick and easy to do online. It takes less than a minute and is important because it leaves your family in no doubt of your wish to be an organ and tissue donor. Registration has a direct influence on consent rates with nine in ten families saying yes to donation when their loved one was
registered, so it’s important to register and discuss your views.

Since 2009, more than 10,000 Australians have had their lives saved as a result of a transplant. In 2017, 1,675 lives were saved through the generosity of 510 deceased organ donors and their families and 273 living donors.

Today around 1,400 Australians and their families are waiting for the call that a life-saving organ has become available. They are counting on the generosity of a donor, and their family, willing to give the gift of life.

During DonateLife Week we can all take the time to join the Australian Organ Donor Register and discuss our wishes with our loved ones.

Even if you have previously registered your decision, DonateLife Week is a great opportunity to remind your family about your organ and tissue donation decision, and to ask and know theirs.

DonateLife Week is led by the Organ and Tissue Authority as part of the national DonateLife campaign and is supported by community events and activities across Australia.

DonateLife want to thank all the donors and their families who have helped transform the lives of others through organ and tissue donation. The generosity of donors has a profound impact on recipients as well as everyone who loves and cares for them.

Support the DonateLife Week campaign online by sharing information about donation through social media using the campaign hashtags  #donatelife  #endthewait and  #makeitcount.

Everyone is a potential donor. What are you waiting for!
