This is a very interesting excerpt from Khaw says key problem to legalising organ trade is exploitation of donors
My question is very simple. Do you think that throwing money in this case will solve the problem? Is this essentially a money problem? Are the relatives not donating because there's no monetary incentive?
If money is really the problem, when did we allow it to become the problem?
This is where the media can really help educate the public on all issues relating to kidney transplant.
One idea that I've always like when it comes to preventing exploitation is to give out money without giving out money. Instead of giving out cash amount in one lump sum, the money should be broken up and distributed periodically. Or simply given out incentives worth the cash amount, like HDB grants or something.
