The national legislation should reflect the rights to use assisted reproductive technologies in addressing problems of inability to have children. At the same time, the use of assisted reproductive technologies, their permitted types, the procedure for use by public or private medical institutions, licensing and accreditation should be provided on a legislative basis.
At the event it was noted that in implementation of the policy of protecting the health of citizens, the issue of training highly qualified medical personnel, including specialists with a scientific degree, is extremely relevant. There is also a high demand for ordinary specialists in such areas as reproductive medicine, embryology, andrology.
