The Delaware Healthcare Association and Gift of Life Donor Program announced that the Medical Society of Delaware and Delaware Health and Social Services have joined Delaware's Statewide Organ Donor Designation Campaign.
The Delaware's Statewide Organ Donor Designation Campaign is a targeted effort to increase the number of registered organ and tissue donors in Delaware by 28,000 by the end of April 2013. The website, DonateLife-De.org, allows Delawareans to register to become organ donors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In Delaware, only 47.5 percent of the state's licensed drivers or state I.D card holders have registered as donors. The campaign partners are working together to increase the state's organ and tissue donor designation rate to at least 50 percent by the end of April 2013.
