Organ transplantation is the only treatment option for the management of organ failure, and its success directly depends upon the balance between the demand and supply of the organs. However, the demand for organs far outpaces its supply. At the same time, most of the developed countries follow an altruistic way, which is organ donation with a will and without any form of benefit for organ supply. Thus, it can be seen that legally all who are involved in organ transplantation get some form of benefits except organ donors. Donating a vital portion of the body by putting at lifelong risk, just for the sake of altruism, can neither justify ethically nor help to meet the increased demand for organs. Ultimately this gives rise to the incident of organ trafficking in order to meet the organ demand. This research is done to know the perception of the healthcare professionals of the tertiary-care center of eastern Nepal regarding organ trafficking.
