HA NOI (VNS) — The Vinmec International Hospital opened its reproductive technology centre last Saturday, bringing the total number of such centres in the country to 21.

The centres aim to help infertile couples in Viet Nam have babies. Equipped with advanced medical facilities, the centre at Vinmec will provide consulting and examination services on reproductive and andrological health to couples, especially infertile ones.

Advanced genetic and stem cell techniques will be used for couples with sperm and ovarial disfunction diseases.

A survey of the health sector in 2012 showed that Viet Nam has about one million infertile couples, making up 7.7 per cent of the total number of couples of reproductive age in the country.

An estimated 60 per cent of infertile couples need reproductive support measures to have a baby. Numerous Vietnamese couples had to go abroad for artificial insemination that costs at least US$10,000 per couple. — VNS
