ORGAN TRAFFICKING IN MACEDONIA
The human organs trafficking is on the rise in the east-European countries, including Macedonia, says the latest report of the American Medical Association.
Organ harvesting operations flourish in Turkey, Moldova and Byelorussia, followed by
Macedonia, Russia, Romania, Bosnia, Albania, Kosovo and other east European countries.
A practice of traveling to east Europe for so-called "transplant tourism" has functioning for a while now, the American Medical Association said.
According to the same source, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Kosovo and the region of the former Yugoslavia are the most common destination of this kind of "tourism".
The most demanded organs include kidneys, lungs, liver, heart valves and even skin.
