Statistics ( Milestones of Hong Kong Organ Transplantation )

In November 2008, the Government established the Centralised Organ Donation Register (CODR) to make it more convenient for people to register their wish to donate organs after death. The Register enables authorised personnel (such as the Hospital Authority's Organ Donation Coordinators) to promptly arrange for organ transplants, so that more waiting patients will benefit. As at , there are now registrations recorded in the Centralised Organ Donation Register, your continuous support is highly appreciated!
