Organ donation and transplantation is a successful therapy that provides cure to some categories of patients suffering from serious organ failures(kidney,heart,liver,lung,pancreas,and bowel).As it is well known,the number of organ donors is still insufficient in all European MS,but another value that should be also considered is the number of organs that are used per donor.Since not all tx programs are running in all EU countries yet,and it is more difficult to find the correct compatibility for some patient categories,it may happen that some organs are not allocated at national level,mainly because there is no suitable recipient on the national WL.These organs although suitable are unfortunately wasted although they could be used in another country.First outcomes of COORENORproject show that the present number of exchanges could grow substantially.The main aim of this action is therefore to better practice of exchange of organs with the end objective of increasing bilateral agreements,and an overallapproach that includes raising awareness and preventing wrong communication attitude.

Organ transplantation (OT) is a consolidated therapy from which thousands of patients benefit in the EU. However, important variations in activity exist between Member States (MS).

ACCORD intends to strengthen the full potential of MS in this field and to improve cooperation between them.

With this general aim, ACCORD is focused on three specific areas as follows:
1. Developing live donor registries and fostering international data sharing on live donation.
2. Increasing the availability of organs from deceased donors by strengthening the cooperation between intensive care units (ICUs) and donor transplant coordinators (DTCs).
3. Promoting exchange of best practices and consolidated expertise in organ donation and transplantation through twinnings experiences.

Finally, ACCORD, as a whole, will facilitate the consistent implementation of the Directive across the whole Union, provide MS with concrete assistance in meeting the objectives of the Action Plan and enhance cooperation between MS.
