Can those who need it buy an organ somewhere?

In Norway and most other countries, it is forbidden to buy and sell human organs. Such activity, unfortunately, occurs in other countries. We can guarantee that transplants in Norway are not carried out with purchased organs.

In may western countries, e.g. US, UK and Scandinavia, the extraction and use of organs is recorded in public records, and only those who are resident in the country can, according to the rules, be placed on the waiting list for a transplant. The medical necessary exchange of donated organs across borders is regulated and organized by the country’s own international institutions.
