Organ donation should be encouraged in China

Organ donation in China is still a limited practice, so legal regulations have been enacted to try to encourage it. There were 1441 donations between 2010 and 2013 (after cardiac death was diagnosed in the donor), and 3903 organs were transplanted. If we consider that there are 846,510 violent deaths in China each year, we can infer that the number of donors could increase significantly (The Lancet 383; 1791-1792, 2014).
