China has replaced Latin America and India as a major world supplier of human organs and the trafficking trade.
In China, wait time for organ transplant often takes as little as weeks to find a compatible organ donor, as the country currently operates the second-largest transplant programs in the world, after the United States.
Since demands always exceed supply, a global organ trafficking system which operate both legally and illegally. The legal form is long and scarce compared to the number of patients waiting in line. The illicit trade which exploits the poor, physically challenged, and prisoners has become the more preferred alternative, and children are not exempt.
As more patients demand new organs amidst a long waiting time, with many patients dying long before they get donors, other sources emerged to bridge the supply gap. These sources, though suspect, satisfied some interests.
