"There is clearly a shortage of donor organs - it's a universal problem," said Renée-Marie Stephano, President of the Medical Tourism Association®.
Stephano said the desperation these patients sometimes face has given rise to "human trafficking," in which an alarming number of organs are bought and sold on the black market in countries, such as China, India and Pakistan.
"Organ donations have proven to save lives and potentially improve the health of patients suffering from chronic disease," said Stephano.

They travel for the best of the best," said Renee-Marie Stephano, the president and co-founder of the Medical Tourism Association. "The downfall of many destinations is they treat medical tourism as a marketing product ... it needs to be more than that. It needs to be a synergy between healthcare and tourism." Successful places, she said, find a niche market and then create a bundled package that includes not only lodging and the medical treatment, but also offers ideas about where to eat, where to pray and where to relax. "They have to have a good experience," she told the two audiences, which included the Bay Economic Development Association investors and later healthcare, hospitality, government and tourism officials.
