ORGAN Donation: a life saver – DonateLife Week, being held from 29 July – 5 August 2018, is a key part of the Australian Government’s national program to increase organ and tissue donation and transplantation outcomes.
Led by the Organ and Tissue Authority, the week aims to raise awareness of organ and tissues donation and encourage Australians to register to be a donor.
All you need is your Medicare number to register to be an organ donor.
More than 1,400 Australians are currently on the waiting list for a life-saving or life-transforming transplant.
The Organ and Tissue Authority urges people to register to be an organ and tissue donor, and let your family know that you are registered. Register to be an organ and tissue donor at donatelife.gov.au
