Over the years, the need for organ transplantation is ever rising.
It is deem necessary to pool all possible efforts to promote organ
donation and to better manage willing donors' information. In this
connection, the three parties: the Hong Kong Medical Association,
the Department of Health and the Hospital Authority joined hands
and discussed the motion of the HKSAR Government taking over and
managing the central database. With months of co-ordination and
liaison, the Department of Health set up a Centralised Organ Donation
Register in the fall of 2008 to manage donors' personal data and
their declared wish.
Seven years after the setting up of the Centralised Organ Donation
Register, the Hong Kong Medical Association Organ Donation Register
Fund Limited was formally deregistered in 2015. However, the Association
will still join hands with the Government and other organisations
to promote public awareness in organ donation.
