In­sti­tute to be set up to treat in­fer­til­ity

Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY -

Founder of Pak Sar Za­min Party Syed Mustafa Ka­mal ad­dress­ing first work­ers con­ven­tion at a lo­cal ho­tel.—PO photo KARACHI—Sindh Gov­er­nor Dr.Ishrat-ul-Ebad Khan has said that an in­sti­tute would be es­tab­lished in public sec­tor to treat mar­ried cou­ples for var­i­ous signs of in­fer­til­ity and re­solve their prob­lems re­gard­ing ca­pa­bil­ity of re­pro­duc­tion.

The Dow Univer­sity of Health Sciences (DUHS) would soon take steps in this re­gard. This he said while ad­dress­ing a gath­er­ing ar­ranged by Australian In­fer­til­ity Med­i­cal Cen­tre for the cou­ples treated at the cen­tre, and their chil­dren.

Ebad said that there are new ad­vance­ments and find­ings in ev­ery field due to the de­vel­op­ment of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy which also in­clude bi­o­log­i­cal sciences.

The IVF treat­ment pro­ce­dure has been of paramount suc­cess for the in­fer­tile cou­ples and mil­lions of peo­ple have ben­e­fited world­wide from this pro­ce­dure, he added.

He fur­ther stated that thou­sands have also adopted this pro­ce­dure in Pak­istan to have ba­bies. There was an ur­gent need to fol­low and adopt the lat­est re­search in the field of chro­mo­so­mal anal­y­sis and em­bry­olog­i­cal de­vel­op­ment, he ob­served.

The Gov­er­nor said, “Our so­ci­ety of­ten makes jokes of the cou­ples who don’t con­ceive even only after a year of mar­riage and this sit­u­a­tion cre­ates mis­un­der­stand­ings and rifts be­tween fam­i­lies which is very un­for­tu­nate.”

Proper and timely di­ag­no­sis can en­sure treat­ment of even the most com­pli­cated dis­eases while ef­forts for erad­i­cat­ing causes re­spon­si­ble for spread of dis­eases must be taken ur­gently.

He com­mended the ef­forts of Australian In­fer­til­ity Med­i­cal Cen­tre for help­ing in de­liv­ery of more than 8,000 ba­bies in Pak­istan since its es­tab­lish­ment.

Se­nior Min­ster Nisar Khuhro and Prof. Ma­sood Hameed also spoke on the oc­ca­sion while CEO of the cen­tre Dr. Sa­j­jad Hus­sain in­formed about the IVF treat­ment pro­ce­dure and fa­cil­i­ties pro­vided at his cen­tre in de­tail. Later the Gov­er­nor dis­trib­uted gifts amongst chil­dren born after treat­ment at the cen­tre.—APP
