Organ Transplant Group Formed
JAMA. 1983 Oct 28; 250(16): 2103.
In response to a call from Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, the American Council on Transplantation (ACT)--a federation of organizations, health professionals, and others interested in human organ donation--has been organized and expects to hold its first formal meeting in January 1984. ACT's goals include ensuring equitable access to available organs, promoting effective use of multiple organ donations, improving donor identification and referral, and motivating the public to donate organs.
