Declaration of Istanbul - Newsletter
As an endorsing society of the Declaration of Istanbul, it is our pleasure to inform you that the Declaration of Istanbul Custodian Group (DICG; www.declarationofistanbul.org ) is starting to put out a regular newsletter. The newsletter contains useful information from all parts of the globe including news and discussions on contemporary ethical challenges.
The DICG exists to promote, sustain and monitor the implementation of the Declaration of Istanbul worldwide, and specifically to promote organ donation free of coercion, exploitation, commercialism or human trafficking, to encourage national or regional self-sufficiency in organ transplantation, and to combat transplant tourism that interferes with meeting the medical needs of a country’s own population. We believe that a regular newsletter will help raise awareness and promote ethical transplantation.
