SINCE JUNE 05, 2018,



As heirs to illustrious French surgeons such as Ambroise Paré, Georges Mareschal, François Gigot de La Peyronie, Dominique-Jean Larrey or, more recently, Henri Mondor, François de Gaudart d’Allaines, Robert Merle d’Aubigné, the Académie Nationale de Chirurgie wants to contribute to meeting the public health challenges we are facing.

Never before have the risks to human health been so great on a global scale.

But never before have the prospects for progress in the service of everyone’s health been so strong.

In this context, the National Academy of Surgery wishes to mobilize as many people as possible by creating the Foundation of the Academy of Surgery, under the aegis of the Foundation of the Academy of Medicine.

The Academy entrusts its Foundation with the responsibility of providing it with the resources for its dual mission:

to ensure that the knowledge and know-how of French surgery is disseminated to as many people as possible, in France and throughout the world;
strengthen the sharing of surgical progress in France and around the world.

With its foundation, the National Academy of Surgery aims to contribute to saving more lives and to repairing or avoiding more disabilities.

The Life Transplant Foundation is a recognized public utility foundation working in favour of organ transplantation and donation. In concrete terms, its missions consist of:

To promote the new law on organ donation to which the Foundation has been committed for several years until its pass and implementation by January 1, 2017. It will save several hundred more lives per year.

To spread the “culture of giving”:
For the Life Transplant Foundation, this is the most effective way to raise awareness among the general public. It also strives to put organ donation back in the spotlight through awareness campaigns and by encouraging every citizen to become aware of this great cause of solidarity.

On June 22, 2019, at the initiative of the Life Transplant Foundation and the collective Greffes+, the organ donation associations, for the first time united, decided to adopt the “green ribbon” as a symbol of fraternity: “All recipients, all donors”. You can find the press release of this operation here.
