European Day of Organ Donation and Transplantation: Number of transplants in EU continues to rise

The 2017 Annual Transplant Report shows that in 2017 there were 700 more transplants performed in the EU compared to the year before. Deceased donation after brain death remains the most common source of organs, but living donation and deceased donation after cardiac death are quickly growing in importance. 

Ahead of the European Day of Organ Donation and Transplantation, Vytenis Andriukaitis, European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, said: ''I am pleased to see the number of transplants and organ donations in the EU steadily growing from year to year. Life is precious and it's a gift we can share even after we are no longer alive. In fact, it is the greatest gift we can give to another human being and a legacy that will keep us alive in that person. I therefore encourage everyone to become organ donors and potentially help to save lives.''
