About IFA

An alliance created by fertility experts, IVF patients, organizations and institutions, the International Fertility Alliance (IFA) strives primarily to help patients in need, find new treatment solutions while examining existing ones (research) as well as to educate our future generations on a topic that concerns us all.

According to World Health Organization

According to World Health Organization

One in six couples (c. 17%) worldwide experience some form of infertility problem - and this number is growing.

This means for every one person someone in their closest surrounding (family, friends, co-worker) is dealing with some kind of infertility issue.

This is why believe that support to patients, education, prevention and investment in research is essential towards a healthier and prosperous future.

Why?

The field of fertility diagnostics, preservation, and assisted reproduction has advanced dramatically over the past decades with science now offering solutions that were only dreamt of even a few years ago. Despite the advancements, the need for heavy investments in technologies and training meant that patient clinics often developed outside of large research and university centers. Unfortunately, this led to a growing communication gap between these expert groups and a slowing down of the pace of patient outcome improvements.

IFA aims to create the best combined patient outcome, from diagnostics to treatment, by uniting experts from all fields including:
  • Clinical doctors and embryologists
  • University researchers
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Paramedical professionals
  • Non-Governmental organizations
