organ donation Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Organ donation can save lives. And it doesn't always just affect the others. Even yourself, your family or a good friend can suddenly be dependent on a life-saving organ donation or tissue transplant. Be it due to a serious illness or an accident. To ensure that people in Rhineland-Palatinate learn more about the topic of organ donation and at the same time become open and sensitive to it, the MSAGD and its partner in the Initiative Organ Donation RLP (IO-RP) provide information on the topic. Whatever you think of organ donation, make a decision. Carry an organ donor card with you, which clearly documents whether you want to donate in an emergency or not. By the way: Your relatives will also be grateful if you take this decision away from you.

Organ donation is a very personal decision and of course voluntary. It is regulated in detail and clearly in the Transplantation Act (TPG) of 1997, so that no abuse can be carried out. Information and an organ donor card for download can be obtained from the Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry of Social Affairs, Labour, Health and Demography, the Initiative Organspende Rheinland-Pfalz, at the Federal Centre for Health Education, from the Federal Ministry of Health and from the German Foundation for Organ Transplantation.
