Organ donations


Facebook partnership increased number of Internet donators by 12%

Currently, 95% of the operations are performed in the country through the Single Health System (SUS). The Ministry of Health, states and municipalities manage the National Transplant System (SNT). The Ministry of Health is investing in the adoption of measures to encourage organ donation in the country through campaigns and mobilization actions.
One of these actions was a partnership between the Ministry of Health and Facebook, where Internet users post their status as an organ donor on their Facebook profiles. In 2012, there were 121,000 such statements. By the end of 2013, it had risen to 135,000, an increase of 12%.
