Saudi Gazette report

JEDDAH — Saudi Arabia’s Cabinet on Tuesday approved the human organ donation regulation during a virtual meeting chaired by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman.

The regulation, which was approved by the Shoura Council in September 2019, allows for the transfer, cultivation, preservation, and development of organs to preserve human life, protect the rights of those from or to whom human organs are transferred, license health facilities, define their responsibilities in relation to organ donation and transplantation, and prevent exploitation of the patient or donor’s need or trafficking in human organs.

It is worth noting that the Council of Senior Scholars and the Council of Islamic Jurisprudence issued a fatwa 22 years ago authorizing the donation of organs of the deceased.
