A network for organ donations and transplants will be formed by 164 qualified hospitals nationwide.

Official statistics show that about 1.5 million people in China need organ transplants, although only some 10,000 transplants are performed annually.

Medical experts have long urged the establishment of a transparent system for organ donation and distribution in order to boost the number of organ donors.
