"Bringing back hope to patients on waiting lists all over Europe"

Message from Vytenis Andriukaitis, Commissioner for Health and Food Safety

Today we celebrate the 18th European Day for Organ Donation and Transplantation. I am in Lithuania where I have come from a very fitting engagement - a conference in honour of the 30th anniversary of the first heart transplant here in my home country. This is such an emotional event for me. As some readers may know, I was a heart surgeon before entering politics, and I had the privilege to take part in that first heart transplant in Lithuania. That moment made such an impression on me that I still remember everything as if it happened just yesterday. It also of course marked a great turning point in medicine and therefore it counts as one of the highlights of my career.

Every year, the European Day for Organ Donation and Transplantation (EODD) provides information on donation and transplantation of organs, tissues and cells. This year too, the EDQM calls on all Europeans to think about the problem of organ shortages which leaves thousands of patients sitting on waiting lists.

Now are available the minutes of the last Board of the Network on 14th June 2017
