You learn something new every day - Australia Week

It's DonateLife Week!

Australia has a world class reputation for successful transplant outcomes. Our docs rock. Unfortunately, it also has one of the lowest donation rates.

19-26 February is DonateLife Week. The eight-day week is all about raising awareness of the need for organ and tissue donation, highlighting the success of transplantation and encouraging Australians to discuss donation, know each other's wishes and register their decision.
