Supporting us means supporting the cause of organ donation and fight for a better medicine in the world

The Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine has integrated the actions carried out by the Life Transplant Foundation, dedicated to organ donation.

By running for the Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine you can actively contribute:

For organ donation

  1. To promote the French new law on organ donation to which the Foundation has been committed for several years until its adoption and implementation by January 1, 2017. It will save several hundred more lives per year.

  2. Spread the « culture of donation »
    For us, this is, the most effective way to raise awareness among the general public. We are also working to put organ donation back in the spotlight through awareness campaigns and by encouraging every citizen to become aware of this great cause of solidarity.

 On June 22, 2019, at the initiative of the Life Transplant Foundation and the collective Greffes+, the organ donation associations, for the first time united, decided to adopt    the "green ribbon" as a symbol of fraternity: "All receivers, all donors". 

For a better medicine in the world

The mission of the Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine is to promote French medicine abroad in order to better disseminate cutting-edge French medical techniques and thus improve people's health. Especially in emerging countries affected by new diseases such as obesity and diabetes, or viruses: Ebola, H1N1,... or infectious diseases linked to climate change (dengue fever, chikungunya...). By running for the Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine, you directly support our actions: inform, raise awareness, enable and improve quality care for the population.

In concrete terms, you encourage our 2020 projects :

  1. Assist in the training of foreign students in French medical techniques, by building relationships with universities in many emerging countries.
  2. Ensure the sustainability of partnerships and cooperation in medicine, by strengthening our actions with emerging countries: this is already the case in Brazil, China, Mexico, India, recently in Russia and Africa.
  3. To allow open debates on major health topics at the Academy of Medicine: better ageing, sport and health, endocrine disrupters
  4. Set up calls for projects to support associations that help access healthcare in France and around the world: prevention of diabetes, AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, hearing problems.
  5. To broadcast conferences on French advances in medicine, in order to accelerate cooperation with other countries. Via our dedicated channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/famx), with free access for all audiences.
  6. Expand Emergency Medicine training abroad more widely, particularly in developing countries where the needs are very high (example: India and its many road accidents, China and isolation in its countryside,...).
  7. To promote high mountain medicine.
