Abstract: Illegal trafficking of human organs from poor to rich countries threatens to undermine donation programmes in industrialised states and worsen a growing shortage, transplant experts said on Monday. Exploiting poor donors, especially for kidneys, is creating a kind of "medical apartheid" that risks turning public opinion against transplantation schemes and could threaten rich states' legal donation programmes, experts said.
