Every year in France, over 12,000 people need an organ transplant, but due to the lack of donors, only 4500 transplants can be performed.
Indeed, too often, after the death of a loved one, families may be reluctant or oppose the donation of organs because they do not know the deceased’s express wishes.
It is therefore imperative that we all share our wishes with our families.
To help you make an informed decision and to express your wishes to your family, the Agence de la Biomédecine has published a practical guide that gives you concrete answers to the questions you can ask yourself and help you in making your decision.
