Increasing the number of transplants in the United States

2016 in review

Liver recipient Todd Poe was one of the record-breaking number of people to get an organ transplant in 2016. Now he’s back at work, promoting organ donation, and enjoying time with his wife and daughters.

More than 33K transplants performed annually for first time in US, thanks to increased donations

Organ transplants performed in the United States in 2016 reached a new record high for the fourth consecutive year. The growth in overall transplants was largely driven by an increase of 9.2 percent in the number of deceased donors from 2015 to 2016, continuing a six-year trend of annual increases.

UNOS operates on a fiscal year schedule beginning October 1 and ending September 30. This schedule coincides with the federal budget cycle, as UNOS holds the federal contract to operate the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN).

The OPTN is a cost-sharing and cost-reimbursement contract in which the federal government contributed $5,109,985 in federal appropriations and the transplant community contributed $39,786,934 of the $44,896,919 program in fiscal year 2015.

OPTN funding represents 79.0% of UNOS revenues. The remaining 21.0% of revenues comprised UNOS fees, data services, meeting registration fees and charitable contributions. These additional revenues provide resources needed to support the OPTN contract and supports the UNOS mission.

Thank you to our supporters

The lifesaving work of organ transplant and procurement wouldn’t be possible without the philanthropic support and dedication of our supporters and friends across the United States.
