Assisted reproductive technique: in April 1997, the first tube baby of western China was born at the Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children. By 2016, more than 22,000 tube babies had been born in the hospital. Over the past years, the pregnancy rate in test-tube infants has remained above 60 percent and the birth rate has remained above 50 percent.
In October 2001, the hospital passed the qualification test for human assisted reproductive technology of the former Ministry of Health and became the first human assisted reproductive center approved by that ministry. In 2006, it was reviewed by it again and approved as a reproductive centre for all supplementary reproductive programs. In 2007, the said ministry qualified it as a training center for human assisted reproductive technology, making it one of the 10 reproductive centers with this qualification in China. It was approved as one of the first batch of pilot medical institutions for “clinical application of high-throughput genome sequencing Non-invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT)” by the former National Health and Family Planning Commission in early 2015 and has since conducted NIPT. It is also the only pilot medical institution in Chongqing that has been allowed to process “clinical application of high-throughput genome sequencing Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)” by the said commission.
