The countdown is on to the 20th summer World Transplant Games and we are looking forward to meeting old friends and making new friends as transplant recipients from all over the globe gather to promote the success of Organ Donation and Transplantation. Click Here to check out the website for the Games.

For over 35 years the World Transplant Games Federation has been staging international sporting events for transplant athletes in order to demonstrate the physical success of transplant surgery and to raise awareness of the need to increase organ donation.

The Karl Landsteiner University of Health Science (KL) together with NÖ Landeskliniken-Holding is organising the conference. It will bring together people involved in the fields of organ transplantation and sports medicine as well as patient representative bodies and students from the fields of human medicine, health sciences, sport sciences and rehabilitation. The aim is to promote prescribed physical activity as a way to improve the quality of life of transplanted patients and as a good practice for the Health Systems. Click here to find out more.

The WTGF is represented in the programme and national transplant sports organisations are also encouraged to send representatives as it will be a wonderful opportunity to learn to network and to promote transplant sport.
