Transplantation / Public awareness | Campaigns | 10 October 2020 | Strasbourg, France
The European Day for Organ Donation and Transplantation (EODD) takes place to raise awareness on the importance of organ, tissue and cell donation as a way to improve and save lives. The mission of the EDQM/Council of Europe is to set quality, safety and ethical standards for organ, tissue and cell donation and transplantation for health professionals. With the organisation of EODD in a different country every year, it seeks not only to encourage public debate and reflection on this topic, but also to invite the medical community and policy makers across Europe to reflect on the importance of this life-saving therapy.
