Survey questionnaire on transplant tourism in China
In the effort to end forced organ harvesting, i.e. organ procurement without free, voluntary consent, DAFOH informs the medical community and the public. In this process DAFOH receives large amounts of information from medical doctors and patients, some stating that patients continue to travel to China for organ transplants despite a 2007 transplant law in China that prohibits transplantation to foreigners.
The amount of information that we received is beyond the threshold where one might assume that these are a few isolated cases. We are told that, to date, medical doctors from many countries send their patients to China for transplants, and patients take the initiative to go to China independently to seek an organ transplant. Currently, the extremely, unprecedented short wait times for transplants in China are not a transparent process, and there is significant evidence that indicates that prisoners of conscience are the primary source for these unethically procured organs.
DAFOH is conducting a questionnaire survey to collect more information on China’s secretive transplant tourism business with the purpose of bringing this issue to the attention of medical and other relevant organizations.
Please help to save the lives of the innocent, and protect patients from unwitting collusion by taking a few moments to complete this survey.
