Australia and New Zealand Organ Donation (ANZOD) Registry

The ANZOD Registry, since its inception in 1989 in Australia and 1993 in New Zealand, continues to record and report on organ donation within Australia and New Zealand. Donation following death results in transplantation which is an effective and well established treatment that can restore health and quality of life to those patients suffering end stage organ failure, therby saving lives. Data related to organ donation and transplantation activity is essential in identifying opportunities for improving care of donors, informing on quality of transplant organs and transplant recipient outcomes.

The Registry reports monthly on this web site, the numbers of deceased organ donors and the number of recipients benefiting from donation. An annual report is also produced for download on health outcomes of donation and how Australia and New Zealand compares international outcomes in organ donation and transplantation.

** The 2014 Annual summary is now available as ajoint release with Australian Organ and Tissue Authority (AOTA). January 2015 monthly data will be released in the coming weeks. **
