To date, the Body Donation Program has nearly 20,000 body donors on its roster, with more than 2,800 donors having died since it was established. The donors come from over 33 countries, with the majority from Germany (about 85%) and North America (about 10%).
Motivation for body donation varies. Typically, donors want to advance anatomy education for future generations after their death. Many body donors register for body donation after visiting a BODY WORLDS exhibition.
