The trade in human parts, like everything trade, arises from a supply and demand,which are advertised to ensure their effectiveness. The investigation reviewed thelegislation pertaining to organ transplants in several Latin American countries.However, not all countries make explicit reference standards for advertising oforgans or other anatomical components as in the case of Mexico. In other noteven mention the word advertising, as in Guatemala, Honduras, Puerto Rico, CostaRica, Venezuela, Bolivia or Chile. Only in Colombia, Peru, Paraguay, Argentina,Brazil and Spain make a direct allusion to advertising and organ transplants. Ingeneral, the rules aim to restrict advertising on human components either fromthe Advertiser or the ad itself.
