The goal of the Trisomy 21 Prenatal Screening Program of Québec is to make prenatal screening for trisomy 21 accessible to pregnant women. The screening test, which is done by analyzing the pregnant woman’s blood, determines whether a baby has a low or high risk of having trisomy 21 and is covered by the Québec Health Insurance Plan. For information on how to participate in the program, a pregnant woman must consult the physician who is following her pregnancy. Participation in the program is voluntary and based on a woman’s free and informed consent.
All women who are at least 9weeks pregnant, regardless of their age.
The Trisomy 21 Prenatal Screening Program of Québec has been introduced in the form of a pilot project.
