On the day of organ donation, Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn (CDU) asked people to make a personal decision about organ donation. "Over 9000 people are waiting for a donor organ in Germany," said Spahn on Friday in Berlin and appealed to the citizens: "It is important that you make a decision." According to a survey by the Barmer, the general willingness to donate organs has increased.

On the day of the organ donation on Saturday, which due to the corona epidemic is only being carried out online with numerous campaigns for the first time, the topic should be drawn to nationwide. This day is "a good occasion" to remind people that they are gathering information and filling out an organ donation card, Spahn emphasized.

The interest, apparently spurred by the months-long debate about the so-called contradiction solution, is greater than ever before. But it is a matter of "making this fundamental willingness" a concrete decision by filling out the organ donation card, said the minister.

Donor numbers rose in the first five months of this year, according to the German Organ Transplantation Foundation (DSO), despite the corona crisis. From January to May, the number of donors who provided their organs after death increased by eight percent compared to the same period last year, as Axel Rahmel, DSO medical director, said. The number of transplanted organs rose from 1254 to 1300 in the period.

Especially in January and February, the numbers would have increased by almost 30 percent. Unlike in other countries in Germany, the Corona crisis did not lead to a slump, said Rahmel. "This is a very encouraging signal for the people on the waiting list."

In a survey by the Barmer, 32 percent of those questioned said that they were definitely ready to donate organs. A year earlier, the figure had been significantly lower at 23 percent. At the same time, the number of people who are certain to rule out organ donation fell from 16 percent to nine percent. A thousand people were interviewed in May. Young people between the ages of 18 and 25, in particular, are 43 percent more willing to donate.

The demand for organ donation cards also increased this year. According to the Federal Center for Health Education (BZgA), around 2.23 million organ donation cards were ordered from January to the end of April. That was a third more than in the same period last year. In addition, 72,500 ID cards were downloaded from the Internet, around 30,000 more than in the previous year. So far, about a third of Germans have documented their decision in an organ donation card.

The German Medical Association demanded that the clarification of organ donation should not stop. "Obviously, the intensive social and political debate at the beginning of the year about the new regulation of organ donation brought this important topic a little more to the attention of the public," said medical president Klaus Reinhardt.

The decision for or against organ donation is still voluntary in Germany. According to a new law, citizens should be encouraged to make a decision when going to the authorities and visiting doctors. An attempt by Spahn to introduce the contradiction solution, with which everyone should count as a donor, if he does not contradict, failed.
