July 9th through the 15th is National Transplant Week in the UK. In light of this, the NHS Organ Donation Register is trying to raise awareness of organ donation and, as part of this campaign, has worked with NHSBT to produce a series of infographics to communicate the importance of registering for organ donation in an eye-catching, easily understandable and engaging manner and encourage readers to take the next step and register online.
The infographics focus on issues such as consent rates, waiting times for organ transplants, annual mortality rates due to lack of available organs, and the gap between people who believe that organ donation is the right thing to do versus people who have actually joined the NHS Organ Donor Register in the UK. One is included below and additional infographics can be seen by clicking through the infographic below.
