How Many People Are Waiting For an Organ Transplant Near You?
Thousands of people are waiting for a second chance at life on the organ transplant waitlist, a chance they will only get if more people say “yes” to organ and tissue donation.
Donor Network West and Mapbox produced an interactive map to show residents in its donation service area of Northern California and Nevada how donation and transplantation impacts their communities.
The maps are powered by data from UNOS, OPTN, Donate Life California, Donate Life Nevada and population data from the U.S. Census Bureau 2016 American Community Survey and look specifically at the 13 million people in the 40 counties served by Donor Network West.
