Council of Europe Member States set standards to ensure the protection and safety of non-resident living donors

27 June 2017
Strasbourg, France

The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe has adopted Resolution CM/Res(2017)1 on principles for the selection, evaluation, donation and follow-up of the non-resident living organ donors. This new resolution, elaborated by the European Committee on Organ Transplantation (CD-P-TO), is aimed at protecting non-resident living donors who, for a number of reasons – economic, emotional, cultural or physical – may be particularly vulnerable, and whose post-donation care and follow-up may be difficult to guarantee.
