Organ donation can now be authorized online


A digital tool for registering organ donation authorization was launched this Tuesday (2) and is now available to the entire population over 18 years of age. The initiative is a partnership between the National Council of Justice (CNJ) and the Colégio Notarial do Brasil and forms part of the campaign “One Heart: be life in someone’s life”.

Through an electronic form, interested people register their desire to join the list of potential donors. The information is passed on to the selected notary office. The expression of will is recorded via video conference and signatures are collected digitally.

From then on, the data is available for consultation by professionals from the National Transplant System. The tool allows you to choose which organ will be donated, between marrow, intestine, kidney, lung, liver, cornea, heart or all.

:: Brazil has the largest public transplant system in the world, but it still faces obstacles ::

The entire process is free and can be carried out via the website www.aedo.org.br. The main objectives of the initiative are to speed up and expand donations in Brazil. Today, more than 42 thousand people are waiting for a transplant. In 2023, three thousand deaths could not have occurred if organs had been available.

The registration platform does not, however, replace the family’s wishes. By law, donations in Brazil must be authorized by family members of the deceased person. The CNJ website provided a question answer with more details on this and other issues. Access here.
