Organ donation following euthanasia
In terms of organ donation, Belgium is playing a pioneering role. Belgium is also one of the three countries in the world with legislation on euthanasia, which allows free choice of end of life under strict conditions.
Since 2005, several organ transplants have been performed after euthanasia. Even if this intervention is accepted on an ethical level, the procedure is not well known. The BTS and the association "LevensEinde Informatie Forum" (LEIF) have published a brochure for information purposes.
