FED:Aust organ donors honoured for their gift

Date: Sun 19 Nov 2017

Men in their 40s are the most likely to donate their organs, with the oldest Australian donor last year an 82 year-old.

New data released by Donate Life to mark Sunday's Thank You Day has shed some light on who Australia's donors are.

In 2016, the oldest man to give the gift of life was 82, and the oldest woman was 81.

The average age of a male donor is 43, while the average age of a female donor is 46.

Slightly more men than women donated an organ last year, 55 per cent compared to 45 per cent, respectively.

The youngest organ donor was younger than one.

So far this year, 1063 Australians received a life-saving transplant thanks to 381 donors and their families.
