Nowadays screening for infectious diseases of each patient has already been included into standard/routine work before it becomes possible to accept the patient or donor to the procedures of Artificial Insemination.
The current level of development of Science and Medicine makes it possible also for patients with incurable diseases as well as for infectious disease carriers to conceive a healthy child. Artificial Insemination gives an opportunity to patients with HIV, B and C Hepatitis to conceive a healthy child and prevent transmission of infection towards their partner.
