DonateLife Week 2019

DonateLife week 2019 is Sunday 28 July to Sunday 4 August.

Led by the Organ and Tissue Authority, DonateLife week is a key part of the Australian Government's national reform program to increase organ and tissue donation and transplantation outcomes.

Each year, events are held across Australia during DonateLife week to encourage all Australians to register their donation decision and to discuss their donation decisions with their loved ones.

Did you know only one in three Australians have joined the Australian Organ Donor Register, even though 81% believe registration of donation decisions is important*?

Registration is important - 9 in 10 families agree to donation proceeding when the deceased is a registered organ donor. This drops to just 52% where the deceased was not registered and the family had no prior knowledge.

More than 1,400 Australians are today on wait lists for a life-saving or life-transforming transplant. If you are willing to one day save lives by becoming an organ and tissue donor, please register and discuss your decision with your family and friends.
