Organ transplants and crimes against humanity in china: An Australian issue

18 Nov 2019 at 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Theatrette, NSW Parliament House 6 Macquarie Street, Sydney NSW
International Coalition To End Transplant Abuse in China (ETAC)

A shortage of organ donors worldwide is undeniable and travelling overseas for a transplant is on the rise. The medical and legal implications of sourcing organs overseas are significant, and often result in breaches of fundamental human rights.

In China a prolific organ transplant trade is flourishing, leading unquestionably to what can be called one of humanity's greatest tragedies. For Australians and businesses, this raises serious issues of human rights and concerns for complicity in crimes against humanity.

Join experts as they discuss this pressing issue in regards to medical ethics, business and human rights implications, modern slavery obligations for Australian businesses, the United Nations’ human rights treaties and mechanisms, and Australia’s responsibility to protect and promote human rights.
