Tribute to Life
The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth (CW) Games present a unique opportunity to showcase organ and tissue donation and transplantation activities of Commonwealth nations towards the noble cause of saving lives.
Through the sharing of knowledge and expertise, we will increase ethical organ and tissue donation and transplantation, regardless of transplant infrastructure, for the benefit of all Commonwealth citizens. We would empower health professionals to achieve a step towards equality for 2.3 billion citizens of CW countries, approximately one third of the world population.
The Commonwealth Tribute to Life project was formally launched on March 14th, 2022, bringing together regional coordinators, supporting organisations, and the global community for organ donation and transplantation.
