Abstract: Amidst the growing international demand for organs to conduct transplants, governments have failed to alleviate this burden despite allowing cadaveric and living organ donations. Iran remains the only country in the world to have defied ethical concerns surrounding organ trade and is also the only country that has successfully eliminated its national waiting list. This paper takes a closer look at the example of Iran and how it can be applied to other countries, in particular, four countries in the Asian region that have struggled with the growing demand for organs as well as the proliferation of the black market. It argues for a more radical approach to tackle the age-old problem of organ shortage and the need to realise that a legalized organ trading system has the potential to augment the current supply of organs.
