|National Minority Donor Awareness Week
National Minority Donor Awareness Week, observed each year from August 1-7, was created to focus awareness on the need for more organ, eye, and tissue donors, especially among minorities. This special week honors minorities who have been donors, and encourages others to register as donors.
A greater diversity of donors may potentially increase access to transplantation for everyone. For more information, please visit organdonor.gov and "Why Minority Donors Are Needed."
- 42 percent of all those receiving transplants were minorities
- 70 percent of minority transplant recipients received kidneys
We're also proud to announce the launch of our new Spanish language website, donaciondeorganos.gov. It has the same content as organdonor.gov, now for the Spanish-speaking public.
Thank you for your commitment to organ, eye, and tissue donation.
