Abstract In this text, we present and elaborate ethical
challenges in transplant medicine related to organ procurement
and organ distribution, together with measures
to solve such challenges. Based on internationally acknowledged
ethical standards, we looked at cases of organ
procurement and distribution practices that deviated from
such ethical standards. One form of organ procurement is
known as commercial organ trafficking, while in China the
organ procurement is mostly based on executing prisoners,
including killing of detained Falun Gong practitioners
for their organs. Efforts from within the medical community
as well as from governments have contributed to provide
solutions to uphold ethical standards in medicine. The
medical profession has the responsibility to actively promote
ethical guidelines in medicine to prevent a decay of
ethical standards and to ensure best medical practices.
