The ERA-EDTA strongly supports initiatives and organizations which are committed to fostering communication on ethical practices in the care of patients.
For this reason ERA-EDTA fully endorses:
the ‘The Declaration of Istanbul on Organ Trafficking and Transplant Tourism’ (http://www.declarationofistanbul.org/)
as well as
the ‘The Declaration of Helsinki’
These are some of most important initiatives whose mission and guidance have always being affecting the medical community and therefore can justify their claim to be worldwide.
