People who wish to be organ donors can now formalize their wishes in a document. The Notary Offices of Mato Grosso do Sul started to offer this service, known as Electronic Organ Donation Authorization (AEDO). The issuance of the AEDO by the notary’s office is free and has been available since yesterday (2).

Electronic authorization was developed by the Colégio Notorial do Brasil – Conselho Federal, an entity that brings together the Notary’s Offices in Brazil. The digital document will be available free of charge on the website wwwçar.

Currently, when there is a case of brain death, the person who authorizes the donation is the family who needs to be aware of the donor’s wishes. With the creation of AEDO, the person’s manifestation is registered within a database that can be accessed by health professionals, who can check the person’s desire to donate their organs.

How to do AEDO – Interested parties must fill out a form that can be found here. The person will be able to inform which organ they wish to donate, selecting between marrow, intestine, kidney, lung, liver, cornea, heart or all.

Then, the notary schedules a videoconference session to identify the interested party and, later, to collect their desire to be a donor. The person also digitally signs the AEDO, which becomes available to those responsible for the National Transplant System. The platform can be accessed at any time.

More than 42 thousand people are waiting in line for a transplant in Brazil. Most people wait for a kidney donation, followed by a liver, heart, lung and pancreas. In 2023 alone, 3,000 people died waiting for an organ donation.

The initiative to launch the AEDO marks the beginning of the campaign “One Heart: be life in someone’s life”, officially launched by the president of the National Council of Justice (CNJ), minister Luís Roberto Barroso, and by the National Inspector of Justice, minister Luis Felipe Salomão.

“The provision that regulates the organ donation procedure ensured the importance of all citizens having free access to a safe mechanism that encourages and brings together the largest number of organ and tissue donors with the aim of respecting the declaration of the will of the donor,” said the National Inspector of Justice, Minister Luis Felipe Salomão.
