National week of organ donations in Quebec

Publié le : 26 April 2013

To mark the national week of organ donations in Quebec, the organisation that manages donations in this State, Transplant Québec, launched a new appeal to the people of Quebec, inviting them to "declare their intention to donate their organs.
Currently in this State, nearly 1,200 people are awaiting a transplantation and "about one million people have made known in writing their desire to donate their organs when they die." But the article points out that "only one per cent of deaths in hospital meet the legal and medical criteria for the donation of organs."
