The necessity to review the law prohibiting the donation to foreigners
Rapporteur- Farbod Dehghani: when someone saves a human life (save the life or disbelief in Islam) its equal he had saved all people’s lives. This verse is decisive; show us importance of human life of all socioeconomic groups. Regardless this person believes in which religion or which nationality he or she has.
In August 2015 that at the insistence of the Minister of Health, Supreme Council of the transplant, made unbelievable and shocking decision, any organ transplants to foreigners with reference to combat trafficking in human organ was banned.
In August 2016, Latifa, 12-year-old Afghan girl, waiting for a liver transplant, died in a hospital in Shiraz. This happened while, the Ministry of Health and Hospitals, rejected the accusation and said, the Afghan girl died, due to rapid growth of disease and delay to come to the medical center.
By law, organ donation, organ transplant, for non-Iranian, is possible only if the donor and recipient are authorized nationals and Iranian nationals, non-nationals do not have the possibility of organ donation. Meanwhile, based on patient rights, hospital is bound to all people regardless of who is providing services; this is one of the principles of medical ethics. (look at Paragraph One of patient rights)
there is No doubt that we need for a critical review of the law, we should not forget that after the death of the girl, Arabic medias launched a wide advertising against our country, accused us of racism. If such events repeats, certainly can cause irreparable damage to the reputation of the country, and the world public opinion.
