Israel’s National Transplant and Organ Donation Center – Adi

Israel’s National Transplant and Organ Donation Center, Adi  (http://www.health.gov.il/transplant/about_adi.htm) maintains a computerized database of Israeli citizens who have stated that they are willing to donate their organs to be used in organ transplants, in the case of death.

Individuals who register with Adi receive an organ donation card; the card can also indicate whether the organ donation ought to be contingent upon approval by a religious leader who is chosen by their families. Ownership of an Adi card can make it easier for family members to make the difficult decision in favor of organ donation.

To register for an Adi card, print and fax the form in English. Alternatively, you can phone 1-800-609-610.
