In order to meet the needs of the Action Plan and the European Directive, the decision was taken to reinforce the GIFT Project in order to:
- support hospitals with a "donor potential" by offering them new agreements designed to implement the local donation coordination function,
- intensify collaboration between reference transplant centres and peripheral centres,
- offer all hospitals access to a regular training system set up by FPS Health and the reference transplant centres.
With the prior setting up of the GIFT Project, FPS Health had a precise idea of donation activity in each hospital that was a member of the Project. The criteria for adhering to a new local donation coordination function agreement were drawn up.
Today, the GIFT Project has benefited from a structure and the local donation coordination function is officially recognised and governed by a Royal Decree published in the Moniteur Belge. Dating from 23.11.2012.
