DonateLife Week 2017

During DonateLife Week 2017 (Sunday 30 July - Sunday 6 August) DonateLife invites all Australians to make their decision count by joining the Australian Organ Donor Register.

Led by the Organ and Tissue Authority, DonateLife Week is a key part of the Australian Government’s national reform program to increase organ and tissue donation and transplantation outcomes.

The aim of increasing the number of registered donors was given added support with last week’s launch by the Minister for Aged Care and Indigenous Hon Ken Wyatt AM, MP of the new online donor registration form at donatelife.gov.au.

Thanks to the new registration form at donatelife.gov.au, it is now faster and easier than ever to register on the Australian Organ Donor Register.

As part of the announcement of the new online registration form, Minister Wyatt also announced the Australian Football League (AFL) – DonateLife partnership. This partnership is a key part of the Australian Government’s national donor online registration campaign. The partnership with the AFL and AFLW will directly contribute to the online donor registration campaign by driving consistent and frequent messages across multiple channels and platforms, including during DonateLife Week.

More than 90 events and activities have been registered for DonateLife Week 2017, such as community BBQs, morning teas, sports events, and much more. To keep up to date with events, visit the DonateLife events page.

Today more than 1,400 Australians and their families are waiting for a life-saving transplant. If you are willing to one day save lives by becoming an organ and tissue donor, register, and discuss your decision with your family and friends. Register at donatelife.gov.au.
