Organdonasjon

Can organs from Norway be sent/transported to other countries?

If it so happens that organs that are available at the time do not match any of the patients on the transplant list in Norway, then an offer is made to transplant hospitals in Scandinavia and Europe. In the same way that countries may make the same offer to Norway, especially from Scandinavia. In previous years Norway has been offered more organ donations from abroad than we had have to offer, and in other years the opposite has been true. Norway cooperates with two organizations: Scandiatransplant in Aalborg (the Nordic countries) and Eurotransplant in Leiden in the Netherlands (Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, and the Benelux countries).
