Fertility treatment availability is set to be extended to single women in Spain.
The Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, announced on Saturday, October 16, that the availability of assisted human reproduction is set to be extended. Single women, lesbians and transsexuals will soon be able to benefit from fertility treatments in Spain.
Darias made the announcement when she spoke at a roundtable discussion at the 40th PSOE Congress on science. Darias commented on the objectives of making “a more decent society” and “giving rights to those who do not have them”.
The Minister of Health has also said that she is committed to shielding the health service from further cuts.
Darias went on to speak about the coronavirus pandemic. She spoke of the fantastic progress made by the Spanish vaccination programme. According to Darias the current low infection rates are “incredible and spectacular.” At the moment almost 90 per cent of people aged over 12 years old have been fully vaccinated against the ongoing pandemic.
“We are world leaders, we have 37 million vaccinated and we want the entire population to be vaccinated, it is a commitment,” said Darias as she appeared with the Minister of Education, Pilar Alegría and the Minister of Innovation, Diana Morant.
Darias believes that “this government will leave a legacy for future governments on how to deal with a crisis”.
