Toronto, Newmarket, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) September 20, 2010
Outreach Health Services is pleased to partner with European Sperm Bank to offer their extensive catalog of Scandinavian and US donors to Canadian families.
Canadian fertility rates are among the lowest of any country in the world, far below the replacement level rate of 2.1 children per woman, and the Canadian population is projected to decline dramatically over the next 50 years. One response to this trend is seen in the dramatic increase in fertility treatments all over the globe, with rising human infertility being traced to a number of factors, both social and environmental.
Outreach Health Services, located in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, has been responding to this rise in infertility by serving Canadian patients and distributing donor sperm throughout Canada since 1999. Outreach ensures that all specimens are fully compliant with the applicable Health Canada Semen Regulations and the Assisted Health Reproduction Act (AHR). Outreach Health Services is recognized by Health Canada as an importer and distributor of human semen for assisted reproduction.
Heather Brooks, R.N. states that “Outreach is pleased to partner with the European Sperm Bank and the European Sperm Bank USA, and to offer their extensive catalog of Scandinavian and US donors to Canadian families. I personally know the challenges of overcoming fertility issues, and we pride ourselves on providing warm and caring assistance to our clients. These are the some of the finest donors that are available and I am pleased to bring them to Canada to assist in creating healthy families.”
The European Sperm Bank (ESB), located in Copenhagen and Aarhus Denmark, is the largest sperm bank in Europe. ESB operates in full compliance with the European Union’s Cells and Tissue Directives, and is also licensed by the Danish Health Authority and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
