The Minister responsible for the Organ and Tissue Authority, the Hon Mark Coulton MP, has launched DonateLife Week 2019 and urged Australians to register as organ and tissue donors.

To mark the week-long awareness campaign, national landmarks including Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Town Hall and Story Bridge in Brisbane are being lit-up magenta, the colour synonymous with DonateLife Week, to shine a light on the issue.

The launch announcement is available on the Department of Health website.
