Parliamentary Inquiry Financial Assistance for Live Organ Donors Bill

The purpose of this bill is to provide financial assistance to people who, for altruistic reasons, donate kidney or liver tissue for transplantation purposes, and who forgo income from, for example, employment during their convalescence. The Bill also provides for the payment of childcare assistance for those who require it during their convalescence.

NZNO members’ experience and expertise in this area would be useful, particularly the potential of this proposals, and with any factors need to be considered to ensure the best outcomes of donors.
