Organ and blood donations

Every year, more than 4,700 organ transplants are carried out in France, and it is estimated that almost 40,000 people live thanks to a transplanted organ. But more than 14,400 people need an organ transplant every year.

This medical technique is becoming better and better mastered, with results in terms of length and quality of life constantly improving. The situations in which a transplant is recommended are increasingly numerous and diverse.

The main obstacle to transplantation is the persistent shortage of available organs, despite the increase in organ donations.

In France, the Agence de la biomédecine manages the national list of patients awaiting transplants, coordinates organ procurement and the distribution and allocation of transplants, ensures that organs procured are allocated to patients awaiting transplants in accordance with medical criteria and the principles of justice, and evaluates medical activities.



In some cases, it is possible to donate organs after death. The kidneys, heart, liver, lungs, pancreas, intestine, etc. of a deceased person can be removed and transplanted into one or more sick people. Transplantation is a last-chance medical procedure: it is considered when the patient's condition deteriorates, and only the replacement of one or more organs can bring about an improvement.

Whether or not to donate one's organs is a personal decision. It is because no-one can decide for you that you must talk about it and state your choice. This is the best way to ensure that your wishes are respected, as well as those of your loved ones. You can apply for your donor card and/or find out more on the following website:
