Ask Mom!

Apparently on Taiwan, the mother makes the final decision about organ donation by any family member.

On August 8, 2016, the Taiwan Organ Donation and Transplantation Registry made public a survey of the attitude towards organ donation of the Taiwanese people.  Among medical workers, 78.5% are willing to donate but only 33.5% of them have signed organ donation agreements and permission papers.  Among the general public, 69.2% are willing to donate but only 12.5% have signed organ donation agreements and permission papers.

Married women over 30 years old are usually the ones to decide whether to donate their deceased husband’s and deceased children’s organs.
