First successful delivery recorded at remote infertility center

Tehran, July 13, IRNA -- Remote Medical Center for Infertility Treatment in Qazvin has announced the birth of the first child conceived at the center, according to the head of University Jihad of Qazvin province.

Monday edition of the English language newspaper Iran Daily quoted Mohammad Hossein Faezi as saying that Iran's first Remote Medical Center for Infertility Treatment was inaugurated in Qazvin on August 19, 2013.

In the last 11 months, 590 couples have sought counseling while 90 couples have established medical profile at the center, he added.

"Some 33 cases of pregnancies have been registered at the center indicating a success rate of 36 percent for infertility treatment during the period," Faezi noted. "This figure should be seen as a great success for the center and is in line with its objectives."

Remote medical centers for infertility treatment were established to provide services to infertile couples in the deprived regions which are short of specialists and lack medical centers.

Such centers have done away with the costs of constructing new medical centers and at the same time make the required services available to residents of deprived regions.
