Fertility Gets a Cash Boost
Many countries internationally are looking to boost not only the economy of fertility but the research and medicine in fertility as well. The UK government will be spending an additional 1.5 million pounds in Northern Ireland to improve fertility services. The new funding is hoping to reduce downtime for infertile couples looking to get In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and other fertility treatments. BBC News reported on what the Health minister said, "Mr McGimpsey said: "The extra recurrent funding I am providing will ensure that, going forward, no-one who qualifies for publicly funded treatment will have a waiting time of longer than a year, and should allow a move towards increasing the number of cycles of treatment." Hopefully other countries will learn from the UK's new fertility funding laws and begin to implement similar tactics to increase education and boost circulation.
