The majority of people in Switzerland are in favour of organ donation. However, only a minority have put their wishes in writing or informed their family of them.

The new awareness campaign “Arrange it, don't postpone it: organ donation.” by the FOPH and Swisstransplant is encouraging them to make a personal, binding decision on organ donation. It’s not enough to just think about it. Everyone should record their wishes on an organ donor card, in a living will or in an electronic patient record (EPR).

The campaign, launched in collaboration with partner Swisstransplant, begins today and will run for two years. The FOPH will be regularly informing the public about organ donation in the campaign “Arrange it, don't postpone it: organ donation.”during the transitional period (2022–2024) and up to the introduction of the new regulation.

The new advert “Don't forget: Arrange organ donation!”, which will be on TV and online from today, reminds people to make a personal decision on organ donation now.
