Organ and Tissue Donation - DonateLife Northern Territory

Did you know?

  • One organ and tissue donor can transform the lives of 10 or more people.
  • One conversation with your family today could one day save the lives of many.

We urge every Northern Territory (NT) family to decide and discuss their donation decision with loved ones today. Families that have had a prior family discussion find it much easier to agree to a loved one becoming a donor. For many, the donation process provides them with comfort in their loss of a loved one.

You can also register your donation decision on the Australian Organ Donor Register (AODR). Registration forms are available at Medicare or at the Australian Organ Donor Register.

Ensure you discuss your decision with your family and know their wishes too.

DonateLife NT

The DonateLife NT team comprises of specialist medical and nursing staff who facilitate the donation process in both Darwin and Alice Springs.

The DonateLife agency provides education to both health professionals and members of the community, whilst implementing new programs and best practice to increase organ and tissue donation performance. We aim to raise awareness about organ and tissue donation, encourage discussion about donation, and offer compassionate support to donor families.
