800,000 married couples, representing 15 percent of all Moroccan couples, are infertile according to Abdel Wahab Bouchouchi, President of the Moroccan Fertility Forum, on Saturday in Rabat, Morocco World News reports.
“Infertility is considered a problem of multiple reasons, imposes itself within society.” Said Bouchouchi
Bouchouchi noted that health coverage is still insufficient to deal with cases of infertility since nearly all insurance cooperatives in the country currently do not cover the cost of reproductive medical assistance.
The president of the Moroccan Fertility Forum suggested that by training activities throughout Moroccan universities in the field of reproduction assistance there might be more help in helping infertile couples.
“The trainings are required to be improved, updated and institutionalized in order to create an approach between the students, biologists and medicines regarding the technological and scientific developments that are related to this domain,” he said.
The president of the Moroccan Association of Medical Sciences, Said Moutaouakil, said that the national forum, organized under the theme of “Medical Assistance on Reproduction Between Legal and Practice,” is meant to establish a law that would institute medical assistance for reproduction matters to enable couples to benefit from this service.
“This requires observing the pros and cons of the bill 47-17 that is related to medical assistance for reproduction, which is presented before the parliament and discuss its items to make it more effective in serving Moroccan married couples, who are experiencing infertility and enables the medicines to work reassuringly,” said Abdel Wahab Bouchouchi, President of the Moroccan Fertility Forum
