Donor Sibling Registry Matches Outside the US

By admin on May 07, 2008

We’ve been working on fine tuning the DSR database so that we can
better understand the who, where and when of matched people. Here is
one piece of new information:

The DSR has matched people in the US, Denmark, England, Canada,
Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong,
Israel, Korea, Malta, New Zealand, Norway, S. Africa, Sweden and Switzerland.

Many of these people used US sperm banks, but some did use local
clinics and sperm and were still able to match. What we have been
seeing lately is that many clinics outside the US use US sperm banks,
but do not tell the parents. This makes watching for matches a much
more challenging job!
