2017-04-21 How to boost organ donations in China
   2017-04-21 15:06:54    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Su

Since China launched an organ donation system in 2010, around 10,000 donors have donated 28,000 vital organs after their deaths.

According to China Organ Transplant Development Foundation (COTDF), the country saw more than 170,000 people express wish for after-death organ donation in a donor registry developed by the foundation since December 2016.

Each month, over 1,400 patients are added to waiting lists.

Observers say the number is still far from enough.

China banned transplants of organs donated from executed prisoners in January 2015, since when voluntary citizen-based organ donations have been the only source of organs.

For more, CRI's Su Yi talked with Dr Campbell Fraser, Senior Lecturer in the Department of International Business and Asian Studies, Griffith Business School, Griffith University, Brisbane.
