Donation of Cadaveric Organs
Anyone above 18 years old, regardless of nationality, may pledge to donate their organs, tissues and/or whole body under the Medical (Therapy, Education and Research) Act (MTERA) for purposes of transplantation, therapy, education and research.
All Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents 21 years old and above, who are of sound mind, are included in the Human Organ Transplant Act (HOTA) unless they have opted out.
HOTA allows for the donation of organs (kidneys, heart, liver and cornea) for the purpose of transplantation in the event of their death. Individuals who opt out of HOTA will receive a lower priority on the organ transplant waiting list if they require an organ transplant in the future.
The forms for pledging under MTERA or opting out under HOTA can be obtained from our staff. For more information on organ donation, you may contact the National Organ Transplant Unit at 6321 4390 or visit the Live On website at
