Transplantation reforms in China: ban on transplantation of bodies of executed criminals

A new system has been launched in China, which allows finding the organs necessary for transplantation. An urgent need for such a system has arisen due to the fact that from January 1, according to the statement of the Chinese head of the donation committee, transplantation of organs of executed criminals without their consent will be prohibited in the country.

Such changes have caused a positive response from human rights organizations and the general public. However, the donor committee fears a sharp decrease in the number of organs for transplantation, since the main number of organs transplanted in China were precisely the organs of the criminals who died from the death penalty.
