About the Games
The Transplant Games are Olympic-style competitions for people who have received life-saving transplants (heart, liver, lung, kidney, pancreas, bone marrow). The Games are overseen by the World Transplant Games Federation, and each event is organized by a local organizing committee.

The 4th Winter World Transplant Games are held in Nendaz, Switzerland (see "Venues") and are organized and hosted by the local Swiss committee.

About this webcast

TransWeb: All About Transplantation and Donation ( is a non-profit educational web site based at the University of Michigan. The first transplantation and donation web site in the world when it was launched in January 1995, TransWeb's mission is to serve as a resource for patients, families, students, health care professionals, and the general public, as well as to promote organ and tissue donation.

Because we feel strongly that the Games are a great way to show that transplantation works and to emphasize that this new-found health is made possible by donation, we devote significant time and energy (and volunteers' efforts!) toward capturing the Games for presentation on the web. In Nendaz, the TransWeb webcast team is comprised of photographers, audio interviewers, writers, and web/digital photo processors (see "Backstage") who have generously volunteered their expertise to report on the Games.
