Non-directed kidney donation is up in the UK

Altruistic organ donations rise in UK almost three-fold

"The number of living people giving one of their organs to a stranger almost tripled last year in the UK, according to new figures.

The Human Tissue Authority (HTA) approved 104 so-called altruistic organ donations in 2012-13 compared with 38 the previous year."

Here are the UK statistics, and here is the page for the UK's kidney exchange program: Paired donation matching scheme
