Message from Dr. Rasha Kelej, announcing the inauguration of the First-ever Government IVF center in Bangladesh

Proud to announce that IVF Center at Dhaka Medical College in Bangladesh has celebrated its opening ceremony on 11th August. It was their dream for a long time to establish this IVF center. I am very proud of them.

Merck Foundation has prepared them for this dream IVF Center. Two clinicians (Dr. Florida Rahman and Dr.Ratna Paul), and 2 Embryologist (Dr. Yeasmin Akter and Dr. Abida sultana) were trained in advanced ART through Merck Foundation Fertility and Embryology training as part of Merck More Than a Mother.

I am very proud of them and looking forward to witnessing their success stories of helping infertile couples and break infertility stigma in their communities.
