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