All infertile couples will be covered by the government-sponsored treatment programs, said Deputy Health Minister Mohammad Aqajani. “A total of 1,050 billion rials ($30 million) has been allocated to the in-vitro fertilization treatment program which will cover about two million couples this year,” that ends in March 2017, he said at a press conference at the Health Ministry on Monday. There are around 3 to 5 million infertile couples in the country. Under the program, about 3 million rials ($85) of the total cost ($485) will be paid by the couples in each phase of the treatment and every couple will be covered under the program three times, IRNA reported.
