Surrogacy Agencies and IVF clinics have appeared in Laos, a landlocked country in the heart of the Indochinese peninsula of Mainland Southeast Asia. Laos is a one-party socialist republic. It espouses Marxism and is governed by a single party communist politburo dominated by military generals.

The capital city is Vientiane. Laos remains one of the most corrupt countries in the world. This has deterred foreign investment and created major problems with the rule of law, including the nation’s ability to enforce contract and business regulation. This has contributed to a third of the population of Laos currently living below the international poverty line. Laos has one of the lowest annual incomes in the world. Laos has also had a poor human rights record.

Laos has no laws pertaining to surrogacy,  limited IVF and no neo-natal intensive care facilities, hence surrogacy programs provide for monitoring and births in neighbouring countries
