The China Organ Harvest Research Center (COHRC) is a U.S.-based not-for-profit 501(c) organization that conducts and presents authoritative research on organ transplant abuse in China, including the killing of prisoners of conscience for organs. We seek out and analyze evidence from a wide range of Chinese and overseas sources. In addition to publishing reports and providing consultation to government entities and non-government organizations, we have presented our research findings at ethics and medical conferences around the world. Before establishing this organization in 2017, our lead researchers had studied the Chinese organ transplantation system for over a decade and contributed to reports cited by CNN, BBC, PBS, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Times of London, The Global and Mail, and Forbes.

Killing for organs is a crime against humanity and a new form of state terrorism. COHRC believes it is our shared responsibility to raise awareness of these atrocities. We look forward to collaborating with other researchers, policymakers, organizations, corporations, journalists, and human rights advocates to help end this barbaric practice and safeguard human dignity.
