About Us

The World Union of Tissue Banking Associations (WUTBA) was established in 2005 as a collaborative effort among the current international peak bodies in tissue and cell banking,  to promote the access to safe and high quality donated human tissue grafts by future recipients worldwide.

WUTBA acknowledges tissue donors and families. Tissue transplantation only exists because someone generously decided to benefit others through the gift of donation

VISION: 

“To act as a global sharing platform for ethical and best practices in tissue & cell donation, and transplantation"
