The campaign does not only focus on lungs but include liver, kidney and heart donations, working in close collaboration with other stakeholders, who together call for better awareness of organ donation and transplantation and enhanced political action on the matter, via a Call to Action.
While some progress has been achieved at European level, with a number of project and a Directive on organ donation, large differences in practices and results exist across the EU. The demand for organs still exceeds the number of available organs in all EU Member States. Moreover, the demand for organs is increasing faster than organ donation rates.
Please take the time to read the information provided by PHA European and join the campaign.
