The ESOT-ETPO alliance

The ESOT-ETPO (European Transplant Patient Organisations) alliance is a collaborative entity established by the European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT) and Transplant Patient Organisations that aims to bring together healthcare professionals and people with transplants.


The mission of the ESOT-ETPO alliance is to promote realistic medicine in organ donation and transplantation. The alliance aims to achieve this by empowering people with transplants, encouraging and facilitating a meaningful dialogue between patients, organ donors and their families, caregivers and transplant professionals to ensure that their views and experiences are represented.
