From Saturday the 24th of July to Sunday 31st of July is DonateLife Week! Run by the Australian Government’s Organ and Tissue Authority and supported by DonateLife agencies across every state and territory, DonateLife Week is a public awareness initiative that encourages Australians to register as organ and tissue donors.
This year, we want up to 100,000 more Australians to register as organ and tissue donors and join The Great Registration Race for DonateLife Week. We know 4 in 5 Australians support donation, yet there are around 13 million Australians aged 16+ who are eligible to register as an organ and tissue donor – but haven’t.

It only takes one minute to sign up at or just three taps in your Medicare app.
Join the #GreatRegistrationRace with us and encourage 100,000 Australians to become registered organ and tissue donors by the end of #DonateLifeWeek. Together, we can help turn this number around. 1,750 Australians are currently on the organ transplant waitlist. You could help save a life one day and change someone’s life forever.
