The Iranian model of compensated living unrelated (LUR) kidney donation has achieved some unique success, but there is an urgent need for a structural revision in the program. In spite of these achievements, the program lacks secure measures to prevent the risk of a direct monetary relationship between donors and recipients, and it must be revised in order to be morally justifiable. By presenting the current organ procurement program from living unrelated kidney donation, this paper calls for the revision of the current procurement system. The paper suggests a “non-directed living donation” policy for organ donation from LUR donors based on anonymous donation. Under such a policy, individuals can donate their organs to unknown recipients altruistically and receive compensation.
