The Donation and Transplantation Community of Practice (DTCP) Strategic Planning Committee, composed of many organizations including OPOs, transplant centers, donor hospitals, and government agencies, came together to develop a collective goal to increase the number of transplants across the nation:
To save and heal more lives by increasing the number of organs transplanted by 5,000 over the next 5 years.
A progress report on the goal was issued in March 2016. The goal called for 333 more transplants in 2015 than in 2014, but the actual number exceeded that goal: 1,586!
Here is the report (click on the images to enlarge them):
