Organ and Tissue Authority

Multicultural and faith communities

All major religions support organ and tissue donation as an act of charity and goodwill. People from all walks of life depend on organ and tissue donation to improve their quality of life — or perhaps even save their life.

The Organ and Tissue Authority produces information and other resources specifically for multicultural and faith communities, including resources available in 18 languages.

Resources have been specifically developed for the following faiths:

  • Buddhist
  • Catholic
  • Hindi
  • Islamic
  • Jewish
  • Orthodox.

We also produce tailored resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians [LINK: Resources > Multicultural and faith communities > Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander resources.
