This portal contains information about declaring willingness to donate organs, as well as the related rights, especially what happens following the death of an Adi card holder.
There are times when those who have been deemed "brain dead" have the opportunity to save the lives of others by having their organs donated.
According to the Ministry of Health website, as of 2013 there are more than 1,000 Israeli children and adults waiting for organ transplants. Approximately 250 of them will receive an organ transplant within the next year, while approximately 100 of them will die waiting for a transplant. Every year hundreds of more patients are added to the waiting list.
In order to help those in need, the Israeli public is invited to sign an Adi card, which declares the carrier's willingness to have his/her organs donated after death.
