We are the nation’s organ procurement organizations(OPOs). We work in every community facilitating organ donation – saving and improving lives, honoring donors and supporting loved ones.
Today there is an urgent need to close the gap between those waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant and available organs. OPOs are committed to helping solve this problem. By improving our own operations, advocating for policies that will increase the availability of organs for transplant, educating the public about organ donation and by partnering with the larger transplant community, we can bring about positive changes that will saves more lives.
We are launching #morelives to share the stories of everyone touched by organ donation. If you are interested in learning more about the organ donation process and the people and organizations that make this possible, we invite you to visit www.morelives.org.
More Lives is a project of the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations.
