What Makes a Person Decide to Donate a Kidney?
KIDNEY VOUCHER PROGRAM
The National Kidney Registry’s (NKR) Voucher program allows donors to donate their kidney many years before their intended recipient may need a kidney. Some Voucher donors have donated 20+ years before their intended recipient is expected to need a transplant with the hope that their intended recipient will never need a transplant. The Voucher program is a subset of the NKR Advanced Donation Program which began in 2011.
