Indira IVF, a network of infertility treatment hospitals in India, has ventured abroad with a hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal.
This move comes after global private equity firm EQT became the majority owner of Indira IVF last year July.
Indira IVF aims to establish five more clinics in Nepal.
Indira IVF’s medical facilities in India claim to have treated more than 400 patients from Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka seeking infertility treatment.
The company’s CEO and co-founder Dr Kshitiz Murdia said: “Nepal has witnessed a consistent decline in fertility rates, reaching a low of 1.799 births per woman in 2023, in contrast to India’s 2.0 births per woman reported for 2019-21.
“As the first organised assisted reproductive technology (ART) player from India entering the country, Indira IVF plans to establish five more clinics nationwide to address the growing demand and provide accessible fertility solutions to families.
