Register, discuss and get involved to save lives!
DonateLife Week 31 July - 7 August 2016!
  • Only one in three Australians have joined the Australian Organ Donor Register, even though 81% believe registration of donation decisions is important  (Woolcott Research 2015)
  • 91% of families agree to donation proceeding where the deceased was a registered organ donor. This drops to just 52% where the deceased was not registered and the family had no prior knowledge.
  • 1,500 +Australians are today waiting for a life-saving or life-transforming transplant.
  • Registration of your donation decision leaves your family in no doubt and, in doing so, provides comfort that they are upholding your decision
  • In DonateLife Week (31 July – 7 August) we are asking all Australians, “What are you waiting for? Join the Australian Organ Donor Register online today!”
