In Vitro Fertilisation on the Increase

Over the past five years, an average of more than 200 couples a year have been sent to national medically assisted reproduction centres. The data was advanced last week by Cláudia Freitas, from the Centre for Medically Assisted Procreation at the Dr. Nélio Mendonça hospital, who highlights that the future perspectives are to create quicker response times so that more people have access to treatment.

Showing her gratitude to the Regional Secretary of Health, Pedro Ramos, who spearheaded the creation of the centre, as well as to Miguel Ferreira, mentor of the project, Cláudia Freitas, recalled that the first baby resulting from in vitro fertilisation was born in 1978. More than 45 years later, however, it still seems important to break the stigmas of in vitro fertilisation.

On the part of the regional secretary for Health and Civil Protection, it was argued that all the Regional Government wants is for all professionals of the Regional Health System to feel that all the procedures that are being carried out are adding value to SESARAM (Health Service of the Autonomous Region of Madeira), to the National System.
