Proceedings of the Workshop on "Organ Harvesting in China"

12-04-2016

This workshop raised awareness on this issue and opens a debate on future transparent investigation by the European Union into organ transplant practice. The workshop consisted of different presentations and an exchange of views between MEPs and established experts in transplantation of organs, organ trafficking and international crime. The current organ trafficking around the world has created a substantial health risk contributing to a serious abuse of human rights, particularly of the right to life. This document reviews the scope for creating a fair system of organ donation and for the use of a more efficient and transparent organ database accessible to EU and eventually to global citizens. This document was provided by Policy Department A for the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety.
