World Organ Donation Day

17 October is World Organ Donation Day. It is a good opportunity to remember that everyone has the power to save a life by donating their organs.

Simply learning about the rules in force concerning organ donation in Luxembourg, may help to increase the number of organ donations and removals.

In Luxembourg, each person who deceases is a potential organ donor. This means that if you object to having your organs removed after your death, you must state your objection in writing, during your lifetime.

For this purpose, an organ donor card, known as a 'Passeport de vie', was introduced by the Ministry of Health.

To find out how to obtain the organ donor card, you can consult our explanatory information page.
