INSER is accredited by REDLARA as a GOLD Seal Center

For 26 years, INSER has worked with love, commitment and responsibility in building a quality model based on research and the application of the best techniques in Assisted Reproduction (AR).  As a testament to this, our Institution has been recognized by the Latin American Network of Assisted Reproduction (REDLARA) as a Fertility Center with a GOLD seal in Latin America.

Our scientific director, who is also deputy director of REDLARA for Colombia and neighboring countries, Dr. Natalia Posada Villa, explains in detail the importance of being part of the Network and the meaning it has for an institution to receive the GOLD seal certification.

 REDLARA was established in 1995, with the participation of 50 centers, and currently has the affiliation of more than 200 human reproduction centers.

Its main mission is to ensure the quality of assisted reproduction services in Latin America through the accreditation of reproduction centers,  the collection, analysis and publication of Assisted Reproduction (AR) procedures performed in the centers affiliated to the Latin American Registry of Assisted Reproduction (RLA), the ongoing education and certification of professionals including physicians, laboratorians (embryologists and andrologists), nurses, psychologists, midwives and geneticists, among others.

It is important as it guarantees the veracity of the data published by the centers about the services they offer and their success rates, emphasizing safe and responsible practice.
