Gift of Life Foundation
Archer Solutions are avid supporters of the Gift of Life Foundation. The Gift of Life Foundation has been established to make Australians aware of our organ transplant crisis and encourage more Australians to become donors.
Organ Donation – General Information
Each year there are only approximately 200 organ donors across Australia. This figure equates to Australia having one of the lowest organ donor rates in the developed world and hundreds of people die each year while waiting for an organ transplant.
For people with serious or life-threatening illness, organ transplantation is their only option for a second chance at life. More than 30,000 Australians have received transplants in the last 60 years. Improved survival rates now mean that most recipients of organs can look forward to a better quality of life.
Less than one per cent of deaths occur in such a way that organ donation is possible and currently only an average of 50 per cent of families consent to organ donation of a loved one across Australia.
The organ donation rate could be dramatically improved if more people discussed their wishes with their family and registered their decision on the Australian Organ Donor Registry.
