The paper discusses why organ donation is not more popular and gives suggestions on solving the scarcity of donors by better use of education.

From the Paper:

"In America, we have the choice to donate organs and save other lives. In countries like China, that choice is not permitted. Traditional beliefs say the body must be kept whole after death. What results is a vast network of crime, where the organs of executed prisoners are harvested and transplanted into wealthy patients in operations that bring Chinese hospitals tens of millions of dollars a year. Executed prisoners are the only source for transplants, and the demand is so great that occasionally the organs are removed before the patient is dead."
