New report on attitudes to organ donation in Hong Kong
This onsite survey of 527 18-34 year-olds found only 6.6% of respondents had signed up or registered as organ donors even though over half were willing. They said the main barriers were lack of clarity about registration procedures and lack of time. A large majority agreed that their donations could be life-saving but over a quarter considered themselves either too young to think about it or were concerned about objections from their families. They also mistrusted the healthcare system. Recommendations were a government promotional campaign and subsidies for living donors.
