The International Donor Registry Conference (IDRC) is the official conference of the WMDA, offering the chance to meet and network with partners from different organisations over four days. The first two days consist of the WMDA working group and committee meetings, while the second part is the IDRC. The Hema Quebec Registry Canada is the host for the 2020 IDRC on 23 – 27 June 2020.


Educational workshops for small and
medium-sized organisations

WMDA organises workshops on a regular basis to educate newcomers in the field of donor care and donor relations. Topics include setting up a network in your country and what to think about if your task is to facilitate the search for a patient in need of a transplant. The first workshop was organised in 2013 by the Cyprus Bone Marrow Donor Registry, while the last workshop (May 2017) was hosted in Germany. In 2014, 2015 and 2016, regional workshops were organised for Indian, South American, and South-East Asian organisations.
