AMMAN — The Council of Ministers on Wednesday approved covering the expenses of harvesting the organs of a brain-dead person who does not have health insurance and implanting them in an uninsured patient.

The Health Ministry would cover the expenses, unless the donor or the beneficiary has health insurance, in which case the cost will be covered by the Civil Health Insurance Fund, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
