Abstract

Ethics of blood and organ donation in Australia has been influenced by voluntarism and the Red Cross. The General Agreement on Trade in Services may threaten the principle of voluntary blood donation and self suf¬≠ficiency of blood in Australia. However, a cooperative approach to managing the public good is more sustain¬≠able than individual self interest and the author argues that voluntary blood and organ donation should be retained.
