On Tuesday a group of patients on the organ donor waiting list called on Netherlands residents to tell their loved ones whether or not they want their organs donated after death. "It is a decision with which you do not want to unwittingly saddle your loved ones at a difficult moment," said 48-year-old Peter, who is waiting for a heart, on the Nierstichting website.

The number of organ transplants in the Netherlands fell by six percent last year, from 817 in 2018 to 769 in 2019, transplantation foundation NTS announced on Monday. The foundation attributes the decrease in transplants to the fact that fewer people donated their organs after death. There was a striking increase in surviving relatives blocking a transplant after death.
