Since April 2015, an infertility treatment plan called ‘Barekat-e-Khanevadeh’ (Family Blessing) is being implemented in the underprivileged areas of the country. So far, around 2,000 couples have received free-of-charge infertility treatment and 24 babies have been born. “Also, 94 women will give birth in the next few months,” said Aaref Norouzi, the project manager, IRNA reported. All infertile couples between the ages 20-40 years living in the underprivileged areas can benefit from the treatment, including in vitro fertilization (IVF) free of charge. The funding for the project is provided by the Barekat Foundation, which is affiliated to the Setad, a special office for executing the decrees of Imam Khomeini in helping the underprivileged.
