DAR ES SALAAM:

PRESIDENT Samia Suluhu Hassan is expected to launch a sperm bank at Muhimbili National Hospital.

Deputy Minister of Health, Dr. Godwin Mollel speaking today February 28, 2024 said President Samia will launch the bank soon.

He said that MNH has started to store the sperm and if a person wants to have a child, he will come to the hospital and be implanted.

"The seeds will be stored for a period of five to 10 years, if a person does not need a child at the relevant time, they will be stored, when he sees now that he needs to have a child, then he will be transplanted," he said.

He said that people don't have to go outside to transplant because inside the hospital they transplant and take care of the seeds.

"You don't have to go to Turkey to implant a pregnancy, Muhimbili we do it and if you need to save your eggs you don't want a child now until later we save your eggs until later when you are ready we will unite you and have a baby," said Dr. Mollel.
