The Australian Government is committed to increasing Australia’s organ and tissue donation rates, and on 26 May 2015 then Minister for Rural Health Senator the Hon Fiona Nash announced a review to examine the effectiveness of the implementation of the national reform agenda on organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

The review, conducted by Ernst & Young, culminated in the report entitled Review of the implementation of the national reform agenda on organ and tissue donation and transplantation (the Review). The Review is an important document which captures the key achievements and challenges in increasing Australia’s organ and tissue donation rates as well as the views of a wide range of stakeholders to shape strategies for continued gains in this area.

This response has been prepared by the Department of Health, in consultation with the Australian Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation Authority (AOTDTA). It addresses all the recommendations raised in the Review and identifies areas for further activity.
