Council of Europe reinforces transparency and safety of organ transplants carried out abroad

27 June 2017
Strasbourg, France

The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe has recently adopted Resolution CM/Res(2017)2 on establishing procedures for the management of patients having received an organ transplant abroad upon return to their home country to receive follow-up. This new resolution aims to protect all patients who have received an organ transplant, regardless of the circumstances in which it was obtained, and to safeguard public health by recommending that all patients undergoing organ transplantation are systematically registered in national transplant records.
