The aim of this study is to determine the effectiveness of an educational program in 157 students with a mean age of 15.36 years at three schools in Malaga. The program included the evaluation of two tests before and after four sessions in an intervention group as compared with a control group. The educational program on organ donation and transplantation led to very positive changes, raising the level of awareness and the number of persons prepared to donate their organs and those of their relatives, as well as the number of participants who discussed the matter at home. Finally, evaluation of this experience showed that inclusion of education about organ donation and transplantation in secondary education can be considered positive.
