Or­gan do­na­tion in China de­fended

China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

Pro­fes­sor Wang Haibo spoke at the 14th Con­gress of the In­ter­na­tional So­ci­ety for Or­gan Do­na­tion and Pro­cure­ment against a ru­mor claim­ing that China se­cretly per­forms 100,000 or­gan trans­plants a year, equal to the com­bined to­tal of the rest of the world. Wang said the ru­mor “in­sults the in­tel­li­gence of trans­plant and medical pro­fes­sion­als”. China’s new na­tional sys­tem for or­gan do­na­tion and trans­plan­ta­tion is based on Chi­nese cul­tural and so­ci­etal norms, and is con­sis­tent with the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion’s guid­ing prin­ci­ples and in­ter­na­tional stan­dards, Wang told his col­leagues from dif­fer­ent coun­tries. He said the 2007 hu­man or­gan trans­plant reg­u­la­tion passed by the State Coun­cil had laid an im­por­tant foun­da­tion for the de­vel­op­ment of a new sys­tem for or­gan do­na­tion and trans­plan­ta­tion in China.
