Law On the protection of the body of a dead person and the use of human tissues and organs in medicine.
The will of the man - to allow or not to allow - must be respected by all medical, educational and scientific institutions.
Organs may be removed from a living donor (e.g. a kidney) only with his written consent.
A living organ donor who has already donated an organ during his life has the right to receive State-guaranteed medical treatment for free by the end of his life.
As from 1 February 2021, each adult person may make his or her wish by making an appropriate note in the national eHealth system.
To do this:
1. to open the website www.eveseliba.gov.lv ;
2. be connected to one of the means of secure access, such as internet banking access data, e-signature or other;
3. select the heading “Personal data” — “Organ and body use permits”;
4. a statement must be made under the heading “Use of organs and tissues for transplantation” on the authorisation or prohibition of all or specified organs and tissues.
When connecting to the national eHealth system, the citizen shall also have the opportunity to make a note on the authorisation or prohibition:
This information has limited access! Information on the will expressed in the eHealth system can be accessed and viewed by a very limited number of people from specific authorities:
The emergency medical service, medical treatment establishments, family doctors' practices, etc. shall not have access to this information.
Every view of the data in the eHealth system is recorded and the citizen can make sure that someone has not looked at the information provided when connecting to the eHealth system. This can be done in the section “Permissions for Organ and Body Use”.
If a citizen does not have an access tool to connect to the eHealth system (internet banking access data, e-signature or other), should inform family of their will. On the other hand, if a citizen does not have a computer or an Internet but has one of the access tools, it is possible to turn to one of the state and municipalities single customer service centres to connect to E-Health and express their will.
