European Organ Donation Day (EODD)

09 October 2019
Strasbourg, France

Every year, the EDQM/Council of Europe organises the European Day for Organ Donation and Transplantation (EODD) in a different country to raise awareness on the importance of organ donation, as a way of saving and improving lives.

This year EODD will be celebrated on Saturday 12 October 2019 in London (United Kingdom) in coordination with the UK’s National Health Service - Blood and Transplant, which will showcase the latest advances in Donation after Circulatory Death (DCD) and Donation among hard to engage communities.

Everyone in Europe is invited to show their support to the cause and to promote organ, tissues and cells donation in order to save the thousands of patients on waiting lists across Europe. Remember that one single donor can save up to eight lives through organ donation and save or improve up to 100 more lives through tissue donation.
