Aspects of Infertility  

Welcome to the section dedicated to the SIG Global and Socio-cultural Aspects of Infertility

Aims of the Special Interest Group on Socio-cultural aspects of (in)fertility

The aims and objectives of the SIG are to gather empirical evidence and increase theoretical insight in:

  • The influence of socio-cultural elements on infertility representations and access to ART
  • Cross-border reproductive care (CBRC) in Europe and Low and Middle Income Countries
  • The influence of new developments in the field of ART on mentality and attitudes in the population
  • Relations between new developments and possibilities in the field of ART and societal changes
  • The socio-political national differences and the impact of legislation on the use and development of ART
