Résumé : Organ trade is unlawful ; organ gift is promoted on condition it is gratiutous, anonymous and spontaneous. The idea of graft and transplantation is understood differently according to culture, religion and ability of a region to supply to its needs in the field of health. The patient's eagerness can explain his quest of a donor in whatever country he is. Even those physicians who have strict ethical guidelines must pay attention not to be involved in blamable jobs. The only way to avoid rewarded organ gifts is to prohibit transplantation touring and grafting from friends, at the risk to loose true-hearted and noble donors.
