BBLF Supports In vitro for Bulgarian Families

BBLF, Foundation "Iskam bebe" and other NGOs presented today their idea to initiate a Social Fund "In vitro". This will give the chance to more than 250 000 Bulgarian families to have up to 3 in vitro attempts!


As a response to an open letter from the organizations mentioned above the first financing will come from the state budget surplus at the amount of 10 million leva. The resources will be sent to the Ministry of Healthcare. The initiators strongly believe that this will not be a one-time event but a long-term state policy.


There are also such kind of programs financed by the state in Bulgaria's neighboring countries. Ms. Maria Shishkova, BBLF Chairperson shared at the press conference that in Macedonia, which is not an EU member and has about 2 million inhabitants there is such a practice already.
