New Delhi: Turkiye has requested India for Gonadotropin drugs -- used in obstetrics and gynecology -- given high demand for in-vitro fertilization (IVF) in that country.

Every year around 65,000 people receive IVF treatment in Turkiye – an expensive procedure in that country with top-notch surgeries costing $3500-4500.
