Giving the Gift of Life

One organ or tissue donor may save or enhance the lives of up to 30 people.

Australian Organ Donor Register

The Australian Organ Donor Register is administered by Medicare on behalf of the Australian Government to provide a simple way for people to record their consent (or objection) to becoming an organ and/or tissue donor.

Donation can involve
  • Organs – which include kidneys, heart, lungs, liver and pancreas
  • Tissue – which include heart valves, bone tissue, skin and eye tissue
