BEIJING, Feb. 25 (Xinhua) -- A trial human organ donation project has brought in 1,804 human organs since March 2010, according to a Monday statement from Ministry of Health and the Red Cross Society of China (RCSC).

Nineteen provinces are currently participating in the project, according to a statement issued at a joint press conference.

Zhao Baige, executive vice-president of the RCSC, said the project should be extended to all provinces before end of the year.

Zhao said relevant departments will build an information platform for organ donations, revise related laws, train staff, regulate donation funds and establish a sound supervision system.
