Transplant Australia is a charity which supports transplant recipients and their families; people on the waiting list, donor families, living donors, healthcare professionals and all those touched by organ and tissue donation.
We lead programs which encourage physical activity to increase survival rates in transplant recipients, like the Australian Transplant Games and Fit for Life.
Transplant Australia also runs life-saving awareness activities and public campaigns, to inspire Australians to join the Organ Donor Register.
We work with several universities to spread the message of organ donation to young people, and fund science and research through the annual Mark Cocks Research Scholarship, presented by the TSANZ.
Our goal is to make sure that every Australian who needs a transplant one day has access to one. Throughout its existence, Transplant Australia has contributed to an environment which has seen a sharp increase in lives saved through organ and tissue donation. The number of transplants taking place every year have doubled in the last 8 years as a result.
We could not do this without support, and we’re grateful to the Australian community who inspires us to continue with our work.
