Sept 29, 2008 (LBO) – Sri Lanka’s Apollo Hospitals is seeing interest for fertility treatment services from the Middle East, Maldives, Canada and USA in addition to Sri Lanka, where an ageing population is stimulating demand, officials said.
Ajith Jayaratna, chairman of Lanka Hospitals Corporation which owns Apollo hospitals in Colombo said around 15 percent of the world population was sub-fertile, and the figures were expected to double by 2050.

Opening a new unit at the hospital, Jayaratne said with the population aging fast in Sri Lanka, fertility services would also have a high demand.

The hospital has set up 30 million rupee facility for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or test tube baby services.

The fertility centre has already achieved 110 pregnancies through Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI) treatment, the hospital said.

The fertility treatments are priced between 150,000 rupees to 450,000 rupees.

Lanka Hospital Services has a management deal with India's Apollo.
