IRAN:
I was reading this article in NYTimes abt Maureen Dowd - for once, nothing anti-Bush. It is abt the importance of organ donation. At one point she says that docs are considering offering financial incentives to encourage donations. And they have given one example. I must confess that I was a bit taken aback by the example. It is not a country of Western Europe... or P5 or G8. Indeed, it is not a country you would expect to have organ donation - if u cling on to the stereotypical notions. It was Iran. Turns out, the country wiped out its kidney transplant waiting list by offering rewards. Now, you start seeing why they say it is really a different case than Iraq or Saudi or DPRK.
