To address the urgent and growing problems of organ sales, transplant tourism and trafficking in organ donors in context of global shortage of organs a Summit Meeting of more than 150 representatives of scientific and medical bodies from around the world was held in Istanbul from April 30 to May 2, 2008. Preparatory work for the meeting was undertaken by a Steering Committee convened by The Transplantation Society and the International Society of Nephrology in Dubai in 2007. Participants at the Istanbul Summit were selected by the Steering Committee according to the following considerations: The country liaisons with The Transplantation Society representing virtually all countries with transplantation programs; Representatives from international societies and the Vatican; Individuals holding leadership positions in nephrology and transplantation; Stakeholders in the public policy aspect of organ transplantation; and ethicists, anthropologists, sociologists, and legal academic well recognized for their writings regarding transplantation policy and practice. This Declaration represents the consensus of the Summit participants and it is an authorized Spanish translation version in order to divulging between Mexican healths professionals and to who concern this topic.
