Organdonasjon

What is family donation?

The term ‘family donation’ is used when a person gives one or their two kidneys to a relative, so a donation from a living donor. Norway is one of the countries in the world that conducts the most kidney transplants from living donors, in relation to the total population. This is good news for both donors and receivers.

The Norwegian government has signalled that kidney donation from living donors shall be held at 40 %.
