Prenatal screening

The Centre for Preventive Paediatrics is a registered non-profit organization. It was founded in 1988 and has since been a pioneer in the implementation of universal prenatal and neonatal screening programs. The Prenatal Screening Program is offered free of charge to all pregnant women resident in Cyprus, whereby a biochemical examination is carried out during the first trimester of pregnancy at the Center’s laboratory. This result is taken in combination with a foetal ultrasound measurement and the mother’s age to provide the necessary information in calculating a risk for Trisomy 21 and other chromosomal defects that may have afflicted the foetus.
