Poland is expected to be the latest country to agree to fund in vitro fertilization for couples in need. Polish Prime Minister Donald Trusk announced Monday his plans to finance in vitro fertilization for couples needing help to conceive.
In vitro fertilization is a medical procedure to assist infertile couples seeking to conceive children. The process involves injecting eggs with sperm outside the womb. The Polish plan would permit funding for couples for whom all other treatment has failed. Couples would be permitted to undergo three rounds of IVF.
IVF has been an option for couples in Poland for many years. But it has never been funded or available to those who cannot afford it. IVF is funded in Belgium, Sweden, Australia and Israel. In Canada, Quebec is the only province fully committed to public funding for in vitro fertilization. Alberta is potentially next in line to enact public funding. In Ontario, parents and parents in waiting are working hard get the province to adopt a policy like Quebec`s.
