Increasing Deceased Organ Donation and Transplantation: Towards a National Strategy was prepared by the sector working group that advised on the recently published National Strategy.
The document provides supplementary detail supporting the Strategy. It sets out in detail the reasons a strategy is required and why the priority actions were chosen.
The next step in implementing the Strategy is establishing the National Agency (Strategic Priority 5), which will then be responsible for driving progress on the Strategy. The Ministry is working through options for the agency, with a particular focus on ensuring the excellent service currently provided by Organ Donation New Zealand is not interrupted.
