Congratulations to the team in Malaga and we look forward to seeing you in 2017.
For over 35 years the World Transplant Games Federation has been staging international sporting events for transplant athletes in order to demonstrate the physical success of transplant surgery and to raise awareness of the need to increase organ donation.

The Summer World Transplant Games take place every two years where over 1500 athletes representing some 69 countries compete at an extraordinarily high level. Many however just come to enjoy taking part at their own pace and welcome the opportunity to meet with other transplant recipients in an atmosphere of fun and friendship. The Winter Games take place in the intervening years.
The World Transplant Games Federation is officially recognised by the International Olympic Committee.
The 19th World Transplant Games was held in 2013 in Durban, South Africa.
