The Costa Rican Social Security Fund (CCSS) has invested $2.3 million into a new in vitro fertilization center known as the High Complexity Reproductive Medicine Unit, which is at the National Hospital of Women.
The investment covers refrigeration chambers, suction pumps for follicular puncture, laminar flow chambers, incubators, gynecological examination beds, ultrasound with probe and a puncture guide.
The center will have everything necessary to diagnose and treat couples and infertile women. It’s one of the most modern centers for reproductive medicine in all of Latin America.
The first treatments will start in June. Aside from in vitro fertilization, embryo transfer will also be carried out. The process to qualify for these services starts at your local Ebais.
An international resolution from 2012 at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights forced Costa Rica to re-establish in vitro fertilization.
