Transplantation / Public awareness | Campaigns | 10 October 2020 | Strasbourg, France
Every year, European countries celebrate European Organ Donation Day (EODD). The idea behind this Day, initiated by the Council of Europe, is to encourage debate and provide information on organ, tissues and cells donation and transplantation, and legal and medical measures so that every European can decide about donation and make their wishes known to their family. Organ, tissues and cells transplantation is one of the great medical success stories of modern times and is the only life-saving treatment for end-stage organ failure in many conditions.
