Dilemmas of Organ Transplantation in Global South: Critical Reflections and Contributions of Medical Anthropology Studies

Emre Yuksek*

Abstract

Organ donation and transplantation as a method of medical treatment is a controversial public health policy. In this article, I focus on the political economy of transplant tourism and organ trafficking as it intersects with the views and positionality of multiple actors, and argue that an anthropological perspective can help to identify and to reframe racial and regional disparities inherent in these flows.
