What can Switzerland learn from your country of residence when it comes to organ donation?

Switzerland has decided in a referendum to change the organ donation law from from explicit to presumed consent. In the future, unless you actively opt out during your lifetime, you will be presumed upon death to have been in favour of donating your organs.

But there is still a long way to go before the implementation of the change in legislation, which will not come into effect before 2024.

Switzerland could benefit from the experience of countries where presumed consent for organ donation is common, which is the case in several European countries.

How is organ donation regulated in your country of residence? And what can Switzerland learn from it?
