Giving Fertility A Hand - Featured on BFM

Fertility Associates founder Dr Richard Fishe featured on BFM covering the trends in fertility.
There are more than 7 billion people living on Earth now. Some of them were born to parents who were technically infertile and who would not know the joys of parenthood without the help of assisted reproductive technology. Dr Richard Fisher, fertility medicine specialist who introduced IVF to New Zealand, joins us in the studio to discuss the progresses in his field.

The Fertility Clinic in Malaysia to achieve international certification

March, 2015

Fertility Associates announced that they are the  fertility clinic in Malaysia to be certified to the International RTAC Code of Practice. RTAC is the Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee Australia , which sets the standards for IVF clinic in Australia.

We are extremely proud to be the first clinic in Malaysia to gain this accreditation and bring international standards of fertility care to our patients” Says Dr Arasu, Fertility Associates Medical Director.

While RTAC is an Australian standard it is now being used outside Australia and New Zealand. RTAC certification is compulsory for clinics in Singapore, and there is interest from other counties too, with the first clinics in Thailand and Vietnam voluntarily seeking certification. The RTAC standard is very rigorous and involves extensive auditing of all of medical and laboratory processes. Auditing is done by the same professional auditors who audit the clinics in Australia, and they are accompanied by a technical expert with many years experience in IVF.

“There are many fertility clinics in Malaysia and it is hard for couples to know which one will give them the best chance to have a baby.” . “Internationally, clinics that have a higher standard of care and proven quality processes have shown to also have higher chances of success.”

The accreditation was voluntarily undertaken by Fertility Associates Petaling Jaya so that patients would know they are getting the same level of care as they would in Australia and New Zealand. “Currently there is no regulation or registry of fertility clinics practicing in Malaysia, meaning that patients don’t have the same the level of assurance that would in Australia, Europe or the USA” .

Fertility Associates’ new PJ clinic uses the same methods and approach as their New Zealand clinics and is a partnership with Malaysia’s Qualitas Medical Group. As the pioneers of fertility in New Zealand, Fertility Associates has 28 years experience and over 15,000 babies born through their clinics. “Developing a clinic with the same level of care and treatment as our New Zealand clinics has been our number one goal, and now we can demonstrate this with RTAC accreditation.” says Dr Richard Fisher, Founder of Fertility Associates’ New Zealand. “With a number of successful pregnancies already underway, our PJ clinic is on the road to becoming a leading fertility clinic in Malaysia.”

Having a baby is one of the most important decisions we make in life, yet having a baby sometimes needs help. Modern fertility treatment can now help almost every couple who is finding it difficult to have a family. In countries like Australia and New Zealand, 2 to 3% of all children born are conceived with the help of IVF.
