Caijing Investigates Illegal Organ Transplant Trading Network

In terms of developing an organ donation system, the Ministry of Health has been wavering between adopting a Donation after Brain-Stem Death (DBD) approach or a Donation after Cardiac Death (DCD) approach. It has also yet to decide whether to adopt an “opt-in” or an “opt-out” mechanism. Huang contended that the prosperity of China’s organ transplant cause depends on the success of the DCD approach. After implementing the DCD approach, an opt-out mechanism would evolve naturally over time.

The Ministry of Health started a pilot program on DCD transplantation in 2011, entrusting the Red Cross Society of China (RCSC) with the organization of organ donations as a third party. In addition, the State Council plans to amend the Regulation on Human Organ Transplants in 2012.
