Azerbaijan adopts state monopoly on artificial insemination
Private artificial insemination will soon be banned in Azerbaijan and will only be available for a specific range of people.
Gulmirza Poladov, head of section of the medical aid organization of the Azerbaijani Healthcare Ministry, said that private clinics were unable to provide the necessary level of support for pregnant women inseminated artificially.
Poladov explained that artificial insemination had a higher risk of miscarriage. Early-born children were prone to defects. Private center cannot give full care to such children.
