Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is used mainly in couples at high risk of transmitting a specific genetic anomaly. It involves genetic testing of embryos generated in vitro, with the aim of identifying embryos which are normal in terms of the anomaly in question and are therefore suitable for transfer. In March 2005 the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) and the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) organised a workshop on the interface between genetics and reproduction in healthcare. In the Course of this event it became evident that a full picture of PGD practice and provision in Europe was needed. PGD is subject to different regulations, practices, professional standards and accreditation requirements across Europe. In Albania PDG is new. The low, the experience and the request are in first steps. Many people (couples) in need do not know what is this new technology and for what is used. A good campaign of opinion’s promotion is necessary. Better a PDG today, than a future seek child.
