The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Council of Europe, along with 8 other partners are supporting the ‘ACCORD’ project which has involved 23 European countries. “Achieving Comprehensive Coordination in Organ Donation throughout the European Union” is a Joint Action coordinated by the Spanish National Transplant Organisation and aims to narrow the inequalities in organ donation by:
- Enhancing the protection of living donors by improving information systems and through common standards.
- Promoting deceased organ donation by facilitating the cooperation between critical care professionals and donor transplant coordinators.
- Sharing practical knowledge, expertise and tools by implementing practical collaborations among countries – through a “twinnings” initiative.
