International Society for Organ Donation and Procurement Section Update


The International Society of Organ Donation and Procurement (ISODP), The Australian DonateLife Network and The Transplantation Society of Australia and New Zealand (TSANZ) are looking forward to hosting delegates in Sydney, Australia for the 12th Congress of the International Society of Organ Donation and Procurement from November 21–24, 2013.

The planned scientific and educational program will present issues, ideas and innovations in organ donation and procurement in meaningful, detailed and accessible way, to stimulate debate and discussion and to hear the best ideas from across the world. Topics such as Death Determination, Living Donors, Donations in Emerging Countries, Donor Transmitted Disease, Education and more will be presented. ISODP and TTS members receive reduced registration fees to attend this prominent Congress of experts in organ donation and procurement.

Built around the attractions of a working harbor, Sydney is the largest and most dynamic economy in Australia, with a highly skilled, multi-lingual workforce and exceptional quality of life. High-rise buildings of the central business district look across the water at green headlands of national parks and comfortable garden suburbs. To the west, the World Heritage Blue Mountains stand as a spectacular barrier to the inland, while the ever-changing moods of the Pacific Ocean dominate the beaches, which stretch for miles north and south from the forbidding cliffs of Sydney Heads.

We hope you will have the opportunity to discover Australia and especially Sydney, which you will find is one of the most friendly and popular places in the world to visit. If you are involved in organ donation, this is the one meeting you cannott afford to miss!
