The data are just out for the calendar year 2011, revealing that 337 generous families donated their loved ones’ organs. This is a record. The Australian Capital Territory had eight multi organ donors which equates with 21.9 donors per million population (based on ABS population data for the ACT of 365,400).  For the first time ever, over 1,000 Australians received transplants which saved or improved their lives.
