Organ donation in Lebanon is among the lowest in the world. There are fewer than two donors per year for one million people! Yet since 2005, the Ministry of Health has published 2 decrees obliging mandatory declaration of deaths and obliging Hospitals to declare potential cases of organ donation. In fact, too often, on the death of one of their relatives, families may hesitate or oppose the levy proposed by the doctors because they do not know whether the deceased was in favor or against Its organs donation. It is therefore important to communicate his position to his family. The Aboujaoudé Hospital team encourages you to take a position and express your choice to those around you, even better to register as a "potential donor".
Organ donation is a humanitarian act rather than a choice. Expressing one's will to give after death can save lives.
- Fill out a donation card.
- Announce your wishes to your loved ones and inform them of your decision to be a potential donor after your death.
