We're inviting all Australians to make their decision count by joining the Australian Organ Donor Register at donatelife.gov.au
We are seeking your support to help us raise awareness and increase the number of Australians registered to be organ and tissue donors.
Each and every person in Australia has a chance to make a real difference in the life of someone who is waiting for an organ or tissue transplant. At DonateLife, we believe all Australians have a responsibility to the community where we live and work, to register to become an organ or tissue donor or spark positive change by talking about donation and sharing your views with your family and friends.
Registering to be a donor directly influences consent rates, with 90 per cent of families agreeing to donation proceeding when their loved one is registered. This drops to 40 per cent when the family is unaware of their loved one's donation decision. Knowing what their loved one wanted brings comfort to families at a very difficult time.
