Living an active and healthy lifestyle is important for all Australians, but particularly for transplant recipients. Research shows that physical activity after transplantation gives your organ the best possible chance of survival.
Transplant Australia encourages and supports our members to remain physically active post transplantation and provides a number of platforms to do this.
As the governor of transplant sports in Australia and a partner of the Australian Sports Commission, we see it as our role to provide transplant recipients with fun and accessible sporting options.
Are you a swimmer? Or perhaps athletics? Transplant Australia has partnered with Swimming Australia and Athletics Australia to recognise transplant recipients under the multi-class sports program. This means that transplant recipients can now compete at a high, elite level of sport in consideration of their transplant.
