Organ and Tissue Donation
Organ and tissue donations are medical processes that save and transform lives. Organs are retrieved from a donor and transplanted into someone who is extremely sick on the Australian transplant roll while tissue donors help transform lives through eye and tissue donations. The anonymity between donor and recipient is upheld in accordance with the Human Tissue Act of 1983. Australia has one among the simplest transplant success rates within the world and research shows that the bulk of Australians support organ and tissue donation.
