TSANZ Ethical Statement Re: Executed Prisoners

The Transplantation Society of Australia and New Zealand (TSANZ) is a strong supporter of the Declaration of Istanbul that condemns trafficking in organs including the use of organs from executed prisoners.

It is a fundamental principle for the TSANZ that organs and tissues are given freely and without coercion and this excludes any executed prisoner from being a donor.

The TSANZ condemns the practice of purchasing a Transplant under any circumstances. Consistent with this, TSANZ also condemns the practice of Australian or New Zealand patients travelling abroad with the intention of purchasing an organ transplant.

The TSANZ, supports the efforts of the World Health Organization (WHO), to curtail the use of organs from executed prisoners in all countries around the world.
