IFFS World Congress History


The World Congress on Fertility and Sterility is an event nearly as old as the IFFS itself. The consideration to hold a congress was explored when the IFFS formed in 1951. The first congress, held in 1953 in New York City was a joint meeting with the American Society for the Study of Sterility (later to become ASRM). The IFFS triennial congress has drawn numerous international luminaries from within the field of reproductive health care during the course of its 62 year history as a global event.
