Swisstransplant wants 100,000 people to complete a donor card by European Organ Donation Day
On 9 September 2017, Swisstransplant is holding a public celebration on the Bundesplatz in Bern to mark the «European Day for Organ Donation and Transplantation» EODD. At the celebration, with support from Swiss bands and numerous other attractions, Swisstransplant and the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) will inform the public about organ donation and transplantation. Since 1 June 2017, a live ticker on www.eodd2017.ch is keeping count how many people have taken the decision so far and filled in a donor card. Swisstransplant hopes that, by the EODD, more than 100,000 people will decide whether they want to donate organs and tissues. Mini-documentaries have been made, profiling some of the people involved in the world of organ donation.
