Organ and blood donations

More and more people are living with a transplant. In fact, 88,188 patients have received transplants in France since 1991, and 50,726 people had a functional graft in 2012. However, more than 17,600 patients needed a transplant in 2012.

Thanks to this increasingly well-controlled medical technique, the length and quality of life are constantly improving. The situations in which a transplant is recommended are increasingly numerous and diverse.

However, the persistent shortage of available organs is one of the main obstacles to transplantation.

In France, theAgence de la biomédecine manages the national list of patients awaiting transplants, coordinates organ harvesting and the distribution and allocation of grafts, ensures that organs harvested are allocated to patients awaiting transplants in accordance with medical criteria and the principles of justice, and evaluates medical activities.

In some cases, it is possible to donate organs after death. The kidneys, heart, liver, lungs, pancreas, intestine, etc. of a deceased person can be removed and transplanted into one or more sick people. Transplantation is a last-chance medical procedure: it is considered when the patient's condition deteriorates, and only the replacement of the organ(s) can bring about an improvement.

Whether or not to donate one's organs is a personal decision. It is because no-one can decide for you that you must talk about it and state your choice. This is the best way to ensure that your wishes are respected, as well as those of your loved ones. You can apply for your donor card and/or find out more on the following website: www.dondorganes.fr.
