Ontario plans to expand newborn screening:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Ontario's newborn screening programme, launched at the end of last month, will provide Can$7m (US$6m) annually to expand the number of tests available, including for several rare genetic disorders. The funds will be used to support the laboratory and to buy high-tech screening equipment. The overall Can$18m programme, announced at the end of last year (see Clinica No 1184, p 12), is unique in Canada for testing for blood disorders in newborns, such as sickle cell disease. It is expected to serve around 130,000 families each year.
