Four commentators provide insightful criticisms of a case study on a contemporary globalised and commercialised practice of transplant medicine based on altruistic donation. The discussion highlights an ethical requirement of accountability for not only national priorities but professional accountability to a suggested global ethics of medicine. Attention is also drawn to the need for conceptual clarification of altruism in emergent settings, and reasons for holding on to, or letting go of, the concept.

Keywords:   Global bioethics, mixed systems of healthcare, altruism contested, professional responsibility, social solidarity
