Key laws and policies

Assisted Reproduction

  • In Turkmenistan, there are no any specific laws on ART.
  • However, assisted reproduction to some extent is regulated by various laws—i.e. Family Code, Health law, and directives of Health ministries—leaving some “gray” areas. (For instance, egg/sperm/embryo donation, as well as genetic material storage, are not covered by law.)


Surrogacy

  • Surrogacy is considered human trafficking.
