Saving lives together
Insights from UNOS leaders on key issues in transplant today
UNOS is proud to steward a transplant system that saves tens of thousands of lives each year. Dr. David Klassen, UNOS Chief Medical Officer, describes how the system continues to support the patients who need it most.
“We must close the gap between patients waiting and available organs to give every patient the transplant they need.”

We’ve got the best organ donation and transplant system in the world. Here’s how to make it even better.
UNOS CEO Brian Shepard proposes a five-part package of reforms that will increase the pool of donors and organs, lead to shorter wait times and better outcomes, and make more lifesaving transplants happen.
“Because we have a full view of how every step of donation and transplant works, we know that what we need now is a comprehensive set of reforms.”
