ISHLT POLICY STATEMENTS


  • ISHLT Statement on Transplant Ethics (PDF) (updated 19 Oct, 2014)

  • ISHLT Position on the Trafficking of Donor Organs:
    Tales from the Organ Trade and similar documentaries are reminders that organ trafficking remains an important international problem. In line with the above ISHLT Statement on Transplant Ethics and in concert with other national and international transplantation societies, the ISHLT strongly and emphatically endorses the Declaration of Istanbul which seeks to abolish the illegal and immoral trade in donor organs which is supported in part by so called “transplant tourism”. As a corollary of which,  the Society values and supports every effort to improve the availability of donor organs by legitimate process thereby providing community access to these life sustaining therapies.
