May 28, 2018 -- An event themed on organ transplantation was held on May 24 at Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland during the World Health Assembly (WHA), at which China was praised for its efforts in the reform of organ donation and transplantation.
Huang Jiefu, chairman of the China Organ Donation and Transplantation Committee, gave an introduction of China’s model of organ donation, allocation and transplantation. ”China has established a national database based on big data to guarantee the fairness and traceability of organ transplantation,” said Huang.
Since 2015, China has changed the source of organ transplantation and all of the organs transplanted are donated voluntarily. China’s organ allocation policies and system have been more transparent, which sets a good example for some countries, said Jose Nunes, director of the Organ Transplantation Program, World Health Organization.
