 China completed 16 thousand organ donation last year, an increase of 25.9% over the previous year.


Huang Jiefu, chairman of the Chinese organ donation and Transplantation Committee, said that 5135 cases of organ donation in 2017 had completed the donation of 16 thousand large organs, which increased by 25.9% compared with 2016. However, the number of patients waiting for organ transplantation in China is over 300 thousand per year, and still faces many difficulties, such as insufficient organ number, insufficient transplant doctors and high cost. Yesterday afternoon, more than 300 thousand of the number of registered organs donated by the China organ transplant development foundation and the Beijing Friendship Hospital affiliated to the Capital Medical University were held in friendship hospital. The Beijing Youth Daily News reporter learned from the scene that in recent years, with the continuous progress of Chinas organ transplantation technology, the number of organ donation and transplantation in China has risen year by year for three years. The source of organ donors has also made a qualitative leap. It has become the third largest organ donor in the world after the United States and Spain.
