Hospital can’t transplant human organ without govt approval

Published on: 3:07 pm - Monday | July 17, 2017

The Cabinet on Monday approved the draft Human Organ Transplantation Act, 2017.

The approval came from the regular weekly meeting of the Cabinet held at the Cabinet Division of the Secretariat with the prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, in the chair.

No hospital can transplant human organ in the country without government approval. But the public hospitals which have specialised units in this sector do not require any approval, said Cabinet Division additional secretary Ashraf Shamim after the meeting.

If anyone violates the law, he will be punished three years of rigorous imprisonment with Tk 10 lakh fine, he said.
