 Organ Donation Statistics in Australia Very Promising

Organ donation can indeed change the lives of people who are critically in need of organs as it can make all the difference between life and death.

Record numbers of organ donors in Australia have helped save the lives of nearly 1000 people in 2011, according to recent figures.

As compared to 2010, the number of donors had gone up by 28 which benefited another 70 patients. This is the highest annual total of deceased organ donors and transplant recipients in Australia's history, yet  the nation's head donor rate needs improvement.  

Parliamentary secretary for health Catherine King said, "We're continuing to see the rate of organ donation in Australia go up, we're now at 14.9 donors per million population (dpmp) and that's up just (from) over 11 (dpmp) from two years ago.(But) there is a long way to go before our rates of organ donation are comparable with other countries."
