China is launching a voluntary donation scheme to curb illegal organs trafficking and also decrease the 65% use of organs from executed prisoners.
About 1.5 million people in China need transplants, but only about 10,000 operations are performed annually. In an effort to curb thriving black markets in trafficked organs, the government has passed a law in 2007, banning trafficking as well as the donation of organs to unrelated recipients.

The scheme will be piloted in 10 provinces and cities and a fund will be started to provide financial aid to donors' families.
