ReproUnion welcomes Henriette Svarre Nielsen to its Executive Board

In February 2021 Henriette Svarre Nielsen stepped into ReproUnion’s Executive Board. Since 2018 she has been part of ReproUnion’s Challenge 2 and worked alongside colleagues in Greater Copenhagen to launch the ReproUnion Biobank & Infertility Cohort.

“We warmly welcome Henriette to the Executive Board and are pleased that she wants to expand her involvement in ReproUnion. Her experience and affiliation in- and outside the project will continue to support the ReproUnion team, as we further embed current activities in the project and look into the future”, says Petter Hartman, CEO of Medicon Valley Alliance, on behalf of the ReproUnion Executive Board.

In 2019 Henriette Svarre Nielsen became Clinical Professor in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Copenhagen, as well as consultant at Hvidovre Hospital with clinical duties in the fertility clinic as well as heading the recurrent pregnancy loss unit.

“My dream is to truly understand the underlying reasons for female and reproductive diseases and I have always had an entrepreneurial drive and felt inspired to look at challenges from a new perspective. The multi-disciplinary approach that ReproUnion has taken, to address five global challenges in reproductive health, brings about many synergies and is a true path to translational collaboration”, says Henriette Svarre Nielsen.

Patient Mobility Agreement

The success of the ReproUnion facilitated Patient Mobility Agreement between Denmark and Sweden may lay the foundation for more bilateral health services between the two neighboring countries.

In 2017, the Patient Mobility Agreement enabled childless couples with certain types of infertility problems to receive specialized treatment within a field of expertise that is not available in their home country in Malmö and Copenhagen area. Today, 40 Danish and Swedish patients have already made use of the patient mobility agreement.

Chairman of the Regional Council of Copenhagen, Sophie Hæstorp Andersen also believes that there are great benefits of cooperation with Sweden for both Danish and Swedish patients.
