Organ donation rates have been stagnant in Alberta for far too long. As a result, too many Albertans are dying needlessly. Our low organ & tissue donation rates affect us all, and touch every community in Alberta and across Canada.
What is clear is that it will take all of us working together, patients and donors, caregivers and health care providers, advocating for the implementation of proven evidence-based policies to bring fundamental change.
In an effort to understand what can be done to increase transplant rates, and how Albertans can get involved, this website was developed to provide kidney patients, living donors and other key stakeholders with the most credible, updated information related to organ & tissue donation, including research, media updates, and patient/donor experiences — all in one place.
Information is powerful. As we work continuously to understand all the facts, what we know, and what we don’t know, we can better advocate for meaningful and impactful change — and take positive action that will actually improve our rates.
The Alberta Branches of The Kidney Foundation have provided critical support to establish phase one of this site with consultation from key advisors. We welcome you to join us.
