Cuba is the only country in Latin America that offers assisted reproduction services of high complexity totally free of charge, despite being a costly treatment, said an expert in Havana.


Havana, Cuba.- In statements to the Cuban News Agency, Dr. Georgina Álvarez Medina, head of the obstetrics and gynecology group in Havana province, said that in any other country only hormone treatment and ultrasounds range from 17,000 to 20,000 dollars.

She added that this is only until pregnancy is achieved, without including all the prenatal care and other services they receive, which are also free in Cuba.

The specialist said that there are currently 386 women that have successfully given birth to their children through this highly complex procedure in Havana since the program started in the country in 2009.

The province works on the study of the infertile couple and also offers perinatology consultations for pregnant women who achieve pregnancy through assisted reproduction. (RHC)
