China establishes fast channels for transporting human organs
China’s health, Police and transportation authorities have jointly established a “green passage” to ensure fast and safe transfer of donated human organs. The move is aimed at shortening transportation time and reducing damage or waste of human organs to help patient survival. According to a Friday circular on the mechanism, Police will help ensure ambulance right of way when health authorities receive donated human organs. Airlines should provide priority boarding services and allow planes carrying human organs to depart first. Health authorities transporting human organs may buy tickets after boarding a train. The Red Cross will also provide help during the transportation process.
