About us

United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) is the private, non-profit organization that manages the nation's organ transplant system under contract with the federal government.

UNOS is involved in many aspects of the organ transplant and donation process:

  • Managing the national transplant waiting list, matching donors to recipients 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • Maintaining the database that contains all organ transplant data for every transplant event that occurs in the U.S.
  • Bring together members to develop policies that make the best use of the limited supply of organs and give all patients a fair chance at receiving the organ they need, regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, religion, lifestyle or financial/social status.
  • Monitoring every organ match to ensure organ allocation policies are followed.
  • Provides assistance to patients, family members and friends.
  • Educates transplant professionals about their important role in the donation and transplant processes.
  • Educating the public about the importance of organ donation.
