Healthcare in Canada - May 2001

The Canadian Blood Services has implemented Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing (NAT) for HIV, using Roche Diagnostics products. NAT testing for the hepatitis C virus has been in place since the fall of 1999. For more information: www.bloodservices.ca.

The Canadian government has introduced draft legislation aimed at banning human cloning while regulating assisted human reproduction. Canadian Health Minister Allan Rock presented the draft law to the committee on health at the House of Commons, saying the draft legislation "addresses something fundamental to the lives of many Canadians." The proposed law would ban the sale and purchase of human embryos, the fusion of genetic material to create human-animal hybrids and sex selection of children for non-medical reasons. The proposed penalties range from fines of up to 500,000 Canadian dollars
