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
“To act as a global sharing platform for ethical and best practices in tissue & cell donation, and transplantation"
WUTBA aims are carried out by the volunteer work of professional experts in the diverse fields related to tissue donation, banking, manufacturing and transplantation, nominated and supported by the Associated and Observer Members. The affairs are conducted following the Association’s Rules (reference)
– Executive Council
– Ethics Working Group
– Global Tissue Banking Facilities Registry Group
