Aim and Scope

Hong Kong is short of organ donations to save lives. This workshop aims to explore the merits and problems of the distinct models of family-based organ donation policy from mainland China and the United States so that we can learn from international and regional experiences and practices. Presentations delivered by outstanding American and Chinese medical and ethical scholars will be both empirically instructive and theoretically insightful.
