165 Chinese hospitals licensed for organ transplants


A total of 165 hospitals across China have been allowed to conduct human organ transplants.

These hospitals span the country’s 31 provincial-level regions, with 20 from Beijing taking up the biggest share, according to the National Health and Family Planning Commission.

Pilot hospitals allowed to transplant organs donated after cardiac death are not included, the commission added.

China now has the world’s second-largest demand for organ transplants. About 300,000 patients suffer organ failure each year, but only around 10,000 transplants are performed annually due to a lack of donors.

China introduced an organ donation system in 2010, with the non-governmental Red Cross Society serving as an independent third party in supervising and facilitating donation procedures.

At present, human organs are mainly procured via three channels in China: donations from executed prisoners, patients’ relatives and regular citizens.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field. Good blog!
