Year by year the actual number of transplanted organs has been growing in Poland. In the event of the Województwo Zachodniopomorskie (Western Pomeranian Province) the primary activities were focused on informing medical personnel at hospital departments about approaching donors through trainings for such medical personnel. Such activities resulted in both acceptance and support, especially by medical personnel of medium as well as lower ranks. Since 1983 two transplant units have been functioning in the Province: SPSK-2 and S. P. W. S. Z. in Szczecin, and since 2000 two co-ordination offices, too. Main result of our activities can be seen in the number of organs procured for transplantation. In 2000 we had 27.7 procurements per million (ppm), in 2001 there were 39.9 ppm.
