Australia is encouraging people to donate their organs as supply falls short of demand.

For example, there are 1,200 people on Australia's kidney waiting list.

Compensation is one of the ways being used to drive up supply, with people being paid while taking time off work to donate and then recover following surgery.

With better medical practises and plenty of doctors, all that is needed is more organ donors, say doctors.
