Policy development process
We strive for consensus in developing policies for organ allocation and distribution. This collaborative process promotes equity among patients. Learn how transplant policies are developed.
We want to hear from patients, professionals, donor families, transplant professionals, and anyone else interested in shaping transplant policy. Learn more about public comment and add your voice.
