Until nations can build transparent, reliable, and protective systems of organ donation through altruistic donations from healthy individuals and deceased donors, poor, and vulnerable individuals will continue to be at risk for being targeted to supply organs to privileged patients.
Since , the World Health Organization WHO developed and updated guiding principles for human organ transplantation. Furthermore, civil society responses have created awareness of what is known about the scope and operations of the organ trade with some efforts to also provide victim 1 assistance COFS ; COFS These efforts have contributed to improve legal and policy frameworks to prohibit the organ trade in key host countries including Pakistan, Egypt, China and the Philippines, with an aim to harmonize policies in accordance with the WHO Guiding Principles.
Improved laws related to transplantation are an important element to both enhance deceased and altruistic organ donation and to counter organ-trade-related abuses. Prioritizing human-rights however affords a comprehensive response, with commitments to protect vulnerable persons, and to prevent and suppress the organ trade.

Such an approach takes into consideration the complex causes and consequences of HTOR, seeking not only legal, but also political, economic and social solutions accordingly. Moreover, centering anti-HTOR efforts within a human-rights framework in analysis and response to this problem enables us to mobilize and employ various international legal instruments to better elicit regional and state obligations to further address the multiple human-rights violations that may occur in the trafficking process.
This paper first presents a brief explanation of the importance of a human-rights-based approach to HTOR followed by an explanation of some of the ways this approach can be implemented. Finally, specific recommendations are presented to various related stakeholders. As conveyed in the United Nations Commentary on Recommended Principles and Guidelines on Human-Rights and Human Trafficking OHCHR , this approach requires us to consider, at each and every stage, the impact or disregard that a law, policy, practice or measure may have on persons who have been or could be trafficked to better advocate their interests, rights, and freedoms.
Multilateral cooperation at international and regional levels has moved towards such an approach to combat human trafficking, in particular sex trafficking Council of Europe Yet, similar to victims of other forms of human trafficking and other crimes, victims of HTOR also require protection from traffickers. To this end, strategic partnerships should be developed and sustained with key human-rights organizations, experts and committees to monitor and evaluate the enforcement of human-rights standards and principles as they apply to HTOR.
Critically, by articulating the human-rights violations that occur during the trafficking process pressure can be brought on states to enforce provisions that adequately prevent, protect, and prosecute against this crime. Thus a human-rights-based response to HTOR would start by identifying the human-rights claims and the corresponding rights obligations of states, as well as the underlying social determinants and structural issues behind this abuse.
Crime control efforts would be implemented in accordance with human-rights norms and principles ensuring adequate provision for protection and prevention measures. Taken together the various provisions outlined in international legal instruments are mutually re-enforceable, applying legal provision to developing norms and principles upon which a rights-based framework can be built Obokata This means that they cannot be suspended, limited or compromised, even in a situation of national emergency.
Thus, although treaty obligations do not directly apply to private individuals, state parties are obliged to pass laws that impose duties to this effect. A treaty only has effective force when codified into domestic law. Therefore if states are to honor their human-rights obligations, they must ensure that there is a legal process in place to prevent, protect, and prosecute accordingly. While trafficking, in its various forms, is a serious crime that invariably constitutes violations of internationally protected rights, states that are party to the relevant conventions of IHRL explored in more detail below have a duty to ensure counter-trafficking measures are enforced in concert with their human-rights obligations.
It was developed to promote interstate cooperation to prevent trafficking, protect trafficking victims and prosecute traffickers. Subsequently, Article 6 a suggests albeit weakly a number of measures to be taken by states to assist and protect victims of trafficking in persons. This is critical to redressing loopholes in domestic transplantation laws, which could allow for trafficked persons to be perceived as willing participants in commercial transplants COFS Therefore hospitals, clinics or other institutions involved in illegal transplants are liable and subject to penalties, albeit contingent on state interpretation and subsequent enforcement in their domestic penal codes.
Further to the provisions above, Article 14 1 provides that nothing in the protocol shall affect the rights, obligations, and responsibilities of states and individuals under international humanitarian and human-rights law. However, HTOR remains relatively misunderstood and ill-defined.
This has a direct impact on the ability of states to prosecute HTOR offences. Moreover, this impairs the ability of victims of HTOR to pursue legal redress. A more nuanced understanding of this issue needs to inform future legislation. Critically, there must be more accountable systems for organ procurement. Indicators and benchmarks should be developed to ensure that all organs used in transplant procedures are traceable to a legitimate source. Various human-rights instruments oblige states to prohibit trafficking of human beings and other related acts.
Health is not limited to a physical and mental condition; rather the right to health infers an ability to be healthy. Its realization is contingent on other rights, i. As discussed, in many countries where HTOR has been identified, such as India and Egypt, medical committees have been established to oversee transplant practices. Nevertheless, organs continue to be commercially sourced from live donors, with a priority on profit rather than the well-being of the donor or the recipient.
As this paper illustrates, socio-economic conditions should not determine an organ removal; such practice discriminates along lines of privileged and disadvantaged individuals and groups. This right is a critical aspect of the human-rights framework dictating acceptable national responses. A number of human-rights treaties contain provisions to this effect.
That is, remedies must be proportionate to the gravity of the harm done.
In the case of HTOR, an effective and proportionate remedy should include: Victims of HTOR must be understood to have similar entitlements and must be provided such services and measures. Beyond recognition, the employment of human-rights and anti-human-trafficking instruments is especially important in a context in which the international legal framework around many of the practices has been silent on these abuses. As the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Human Trafficking expressed in her thematic report to the UN General Assembly in October , her review of cases reveals that the exploitation of persons who are compelled by need or force to provide organs for transplantation to nationals within their own countries or to foreigners falls squarely within the international legal definition of trafficking in persons.
As noted, characterizing these cases as HTOR entails state obligations that address individual rights. The Special Rapporteur highlighted that the trafficking legal framework can also be effectively leveraged to tackle transplant tourism by extending the jurisdictional reach of national criminal laws. It is also a central obligation of the UN Trafficking Protocol to establish cross-border cooperation between law-enforcement agencies and an obligation on states to strengthen their capacity for such cooperation and to strengthen border controls to prevent and detect HTOR. In so doing, these parties should work in close collaboration to enable lessons learned and best practices developed to address other human-rights abuses especially other forms of human trafficking to assist with advancing advocacy towards fighting HTOR abuses.
For example, in recent years and months, experts have refined various concepts with the UN Trafficking Protocol i. As advocates of anti-HTOR efforts rely further upon human-rights instruments and the UN Trafficking Protocol, it will be important to learn from these experiences and incorporate these refinements. Accordingly domestic trafficking laws must include HTOR.
Furthermore, apart from consent procedures usually operated by a hospital or health-ministry committee , a third party must first serve as an advocate for potential organ donors and to assess their vulnerability. This builds on the concept of a psychosocial evaluation to include a broader assessment of vulnerability with a trafficking lens. Namely, almost every state across the globe has a domestic transplant law that prohibits the buying and selling of human organs. These laws should extend the jurisdiction to ban citizens and residents from purchasing an organ outside of its borders Budiani-Saberi For example, patients in North America or Europe should be prohibited from buying an organ in Mexico, China, or the Philippines or elsewhere; patients in Persian Gulf countries should be prohibited from buying an organ in Egypt or Syria or elsewhere.
States should also create barriers to transplant tourism by including a prohibition for insurance companies to cover the expenses of immunosuppressant drugs for patients who purchased an organ abroad. They should also continue to recognize the limitations of the consent procedures and support the advancement of a third-party process to assess vulnerabilities via a trafficking lens.
Social scientists, civil society, and human-rights activists should share findings and include relevant information to address and manage cases. Again, a third party should then be established to play this role of advocacy and to conduct vulnerability assessments. Relevant human-rights groups should be considered to take on this role. It is primarily a human-rights concern. Thus, although it is important that states develop their national transplant systems and introduce measures to achieve national self-sufficiency in the supply of organs, this will only address part of a much broader issue.
