MUMBAI, Feb 20, 2008 (IPS) - The arrest of �Doctor Kidney� Amit Kumar for running a sizeable racket in live kidneys has highlighted the role that South Asia plays as the hub of an international trade in human organs. A sophisticated but unregulated healthcare industry, a "donor pool" of desperately poor people ready to sell a kidney and a corrupt monitoring system have combined to create a special brand of �medical tourism� in the region, especially in India and neighbouring Pakistan. While India' Transplantation of Human Organs Act (THOA), 1994, is observed mostly in the breach, the impact of Pakistan' ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
