IVF Centro de Reproducción (IVFPANAMA) was founded in 2002 after noticing a gap in access to advanced reproductive technologies (ART) in Panama and the Latin-American region. From the beginning we have offered cutting edge techniques such as Introcytoplasmic Sperm Injection, Preimplantation Genetic Screening, Embryo and Oocyte vitrification, among others.
Through early adoption of technologies as well as constantly updating our clinical and laboratory knowledge we have achieved exceptional success rates. In 2007, we founded the National Foundation for Fertility and Sterility (FUNAFES), a non-for-profit organization that helps low-income patients gain access to ART with low-cost treatments. Oncofertility is a developing and exciting field which will be the perfect fit for FUNAFES, given that most patients undergoing cancer treatment in Panama have low-income. Improving access to fertility care through clear, evidence based guidelines is pivotal in helping patients undergoing cancer treatments.
