Womens Hospital International

Description

Women's Hospital International (WHI) provides the highest possible standard of Gynaecology and Fertility treatment in a caring, compassionate and personalized environment.

Starting and running a clinic providing assisted reproductive techniques in the middle of Africa is quite challenging. The clinic was launched in 2004 and was then known as the Kampala Gynaecology&Fertility Centre. The clinic started in a converted apartment from a four flat building. In the beginning, there were difficulties with importing drugs, culture media and consumables, power failures, night intruders and a 20% masturbation failure. But once the first IVF/ICSI babies were born the projects possibilities became clear. At present, 250 IVF/ICSI cycles a year are done in batches, with successful embryo freezing programs, IUI/ICSI for sero discordant HIV couples.

The center's services include:
1. IVF (Invitro Fertilisation)
2. IVF/ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection)
3. Egg Donation
4. IUI (Intra Uterine Insemination)
5. HIV sperm wash (for HIV discordant couple)
6. Laboratory Tests (Hormoinal tests, Seminal analysis)
7. Counselling
8. Laparoscopic surgery
9. Fertility treatment
10. Ultra Sound scan
11. Family Planning
12. Myomectomy Operations

WHI is the first clinic in Central Africa to have babies through IVF, ICSI, testicular biopsy, embryo freezing, oocyte donation and surrogacy. The clinic claims success rates comparable with those in the west. The center says it has delivered 15 ART babies since its opening in 2004.
