30-05-2007

Only 44 percent of Czechs are willing to donate their organs for transplant after their death, which is one of the lowest figures compared to other EU member states, according to a poll released by the Eurobarometer EU polling agency on wednesday. On average, 56 percent of all EU inhabitants would donate their organs for transplant. Ten people die in the EU a day over the lack of organs for transplant. About 40,000 people are now waiting for transplants in Europe.
