In November 2012, China’s Vice-Minister of Health Huang Jiefu told the Chinese press that China’s organ transplantation has long relied on executed prisoners.
China’s organ sources are chaotic, and illegal organ trading and organ transplant tourism are rampant, Huang said.
Several international investigations and reports in recent years have pointed out that there are not enough death penalty prisoners in China to provide the organs needed. The large shortfall is made up by forced harvesting of organs from live prisoners of conscience in China, the reports say.
